TITLE: SCENERY CHANGE
LOCATION: SOMEWHERE BETWEEN TIANJIN AND QINGDAO
MISSION: GO FIND MY FRIEND KERRY
DATE: 2009-02-04

Today I left Tianjin heading for the coast. This time I hade the fortune of riding the express train or D-Train (动车), similar in speed to our X2000. The Chinese system is a little more efficient though. It stops at fewer stations and only stops for 1 minute at each stop. To manage this, people line up in front of each coach's door, waiting. Every coach has two doors, one for getting on and one for getting of the train. It is also way quieter inside then the X2000. The journey took 5,5 hours without incidents or delays. I going to start exploring Qingdao tomorrow morning. Stay tuned!

"Hej! Jag funderar lite, skulle du kunna titta ut något hotellt i Beijing eller kolla hur man ordnar det? Och kanske hjälpa oss med flyg tillbaka från Xian sen? Kommer att jobba galet mycket den här veckan så det skulle vara skönt med lite planeringshjälp från experten! :)"
