|In line at the train station|
We took 4 1/2 hours to get there. Anna Faith sat in the window and sang, played I Spy, talked my ear off, and ate lots of snacks. She couldn’t rest until the last 30 minutes. Kris got a nap but I didn’t.
|Very, very crowded|

|Waiting to arrive in Nanjing|
We passed through lots of small mountains. It was pretty to see.
When we arrived our driver to the hotel was waiting for us. It took 30 minutes to get to the hotel. The trees and landscaping in Nanjing is gorgeous! It is a city of 8 million compared to Beijing’s 20 million. The trees here are so huge and old, and many have leaves on them. The snow was hanging on everything. It was like a scene from Chronicles of Narnia. Our hotel is right in the middle of the city. There is a mall attached to the lobby, but to our surprise it has an outdoor walkway around the shops! It is very high end like the one in Beijing so we will only be eating some meals here. The only food we could find fast was at McDonald’s. We wanted to unpack and get to bed.
