The train was a bit older and dirtier. The dirt was then prodigiously compounded by simian lady's child. He was an unruly lout who climbed all about and ground cookie crumbs into the already filthy carpet. Simian lady herself was also a study: she ate an unprecedented amount of food. On the train last winter holiday we encountered another such individual on the train from Nanning to Guangzhou: fruit man. He had eaten fruit continuously while staring out the window. However, simian lady was more diverse in her habits of mastication. She would eat fruit and nuts and cookies and packages of dried meat. After this was accomplished she would then buy some gross food from train attendant and eat a bit...stuff some into the mouth of unruly kid (on the bunk above)...then toss the still mostly full container into the rubbish heap...then take herself and unruly kid off to the dining car
As we neared Beijing on the morning of the 6th Martin decided to don a second pair of socks. So bored were the berth inhabitants that his donning of the socks garnered everyone's undivided attention...even that of smelly, disinterested guy from the middle bunk.
Train from DS to BJ - 127 kuai - 34 hrs
