London -> Harwich -> Hoek of Holland -> Amsterdam (Holland) -> Copenhagen (Denmark) -> Stockholm (Sweden) -> Riga (Latvia) -> Moscow (Russia) -> [Trans-siberian or Trans-mongolian Express] -> Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia) -> [Trans-mongolian Express] -> Beijing (China) -> Hong Kong (SAR, China) -> Guangzhou (China) -> Nanning (Guangxi, China)
Farewell hugs before I dashed down the Peak to the MTR intercity through train from Hong Kong to Guangzhou.
Complimentary water from Watson’s, and I packed a little bite to eat, to be washed down with a soya bean drink.
Sleeper replacement people, one of whom (out of the frame of this photo) was taking a photo of us on the train passing him.
At the Guangzhou East Railway Station, loved the Ching-lish. 🙂
Loads of red everywhere! Even the digital signs were red. Also, chain-smoking indoors.
On the sleeper train from Guangzhou East Railway Station to Nanning, Guangxi, the restaurant car provided a cheap but incredibly tasty and filling dinner.
Later, babies were given milk (a train attendant went past giving milk powder samples – see the 2008 milk powder scandal and then the contamination of Fonterra’s milk).
Early the next morning, we were in Nanning, Guangxi.
