Journey to Tibet pt4. The Train ride.
Maria and I finally made it on to the train. After a 30 minute delay. We scrambled on to the train and made some bargaining arrangements with a few people to be in the same sleeper cabin – or at least within a close proximity.
We quickly settled in after the deals were complete and the train started to move.
This was it…
We ate, we talked, we laughed.
It was an enjoyable ride and it was only day one of a two and a half day train ride from Guangzhou to Lhasa.
Yes you read that correctly, to and a half day train ride.
The scenes where beautiful as we sailed the iron waves across southwest China.
Maria and I continued to explore new ideas and insights of our journey. Before we realized, we had arrived to our check point where we would transfer to the Skytrain.
Here is where things get really interesting.
