Ueruemqi to Beijing

Our son Thomas is having fun

in the open sleeper

Our train, Ürümqi to Beijing, China, May 2009

Ürümqi is the capital from Xinjiang. About 3,700 kilometers by rail to Beijing. Around 48 hours on the train. We had a great time getting close to the Chinese people.

Linked to ABC Wednesday. C is for China. And for Couchsurfing in China. We had a great time in Ürümqi staying in the flat from a young man, spending two fantastic days together, exploring the city and eating the best local food. And he helped us to buy a ticket for this train, so it was easy.
Next time the letter C will be Couchsurfing. Such a great way to travel. Today it is to late.
Ürümqi is Ueruemqi is Urumqi is Wulumuqi.

Linked to Our World Tuesday and to signs, signs
