The train journey from Xian to Chengdou was fun. Many Chinese travelers on our coach were interested in talking to us in English so we ended up sitting on one of the bottom bunks with a group of people chatting and trying to learn some Chinese.
A family with a 6-year old son seemed to be especially fond of us and kept on giving us Chinese food and treats, some of them were nice some not so much. Good thing they fell in love with Jack especially because "he is so handsome", so he was woken up by them in the morning while I managed to sleep in till about 9 (which is a record for me on journeys).
After getting stuffed with treats again the train rolled into the station and it was time to say goodbye. We exchanged phone numbers... the family wants to meet up with us for dinner in Chengdou. Let's see if we can organize something.
