I met a Dutch guy on the train on the way here and met up with him on my last night in Nanjing to go for a beer in the City… it ended up being a pretty crazy night out!
One of the cool things though was that most Chinese people play a really cool drinking game with dice that are provided in all the bars. It took a while to pick it up as the Chinese can count to 10 with just one hand! But before long I was pretty fluent in all the rules and quickly making friends.
All in all Nanjing was a great city and although I could have stayed longer, my time as always was short. I considered going to Shanghai, but then thought that I wanted something a bit more adventurous and so booked myself on a 32 hour train to Chengdu deep in the West of China. A decision that would turn out to be one of the best I made whilst in China!
