A Pagoda, A Train & A New City

We left Xi’An this afternoon, but first we visited the Small Goose Pagoda for a gentle stroll and a chance to search for inner peace and tranquility (Couldn’t find it unfortunately – think I left mine on the bus).

While we were there our Local Guide Jason ran some of our group through some basic Tai Chi movements. For their first time, they did rather well.

After that it was on to the High Speed rail station for our journey to the next city, Chengdu. Chinese stations (all new, of course) are more like airports than stations.

I thought I’d better include a couple of photos of the trains (putting the ‘Rail’ in Great Rail Journeys).

Each carriage has a little old lay who continuously smiles, mops the floor and collect rubbish and a Stewardess who wears her (very smart) hat all the time and wears immaculate uniform and make-up.

So… Just like the trains in the UK then.
