25h50m From Chengdu To Beijing By Train, Seat

July 22 to 23, 2007

-17 °C

Having some experience with hard sleeper in train, I guess I could do it better. So I asked for seat this time to go to Beijing.

At the beginning several hours, it was ok. Everyone had been seated luckily.

Some time later some girl was approaching to the woman, who was sitting next to me. She asked for seat since the seat was still empty till that time. Actually it was empty till we got Beijing. I noticed some ones they did not have any seat, but with the same price we paid for seats.

With time on, the people became more and more and everyone of them just stood in the aisle, watching the situation if there was any seat empty.

It became worse with those people standing. The way was all blocked to everywhere, toilets, wash rooms and any place they could put their feet in.

I guess this would be my last time to take seat to somewhere by train. But this experience is not bad at all, at least I see something I have not seen before.
