    We planned our trip only a few days before departure. Maybe “plan” isn’t even the right word. But rather, we purchased our train tickets. There wasn’t much availability, so our only choice for the Beijing — Xi’an leg was to take “hard seats.” This is a nearly 13 hour overnight journey. At the time of purchase I thought things like “this will be a good experience,” “it can’t be worse than a 13 hour flight,” and “I’m saving so much money.” But after being told that these seats were “not as comfortable as airplane economy seats,” I started to worry. But then I was reminded that it could have been worse. A recently arrived CSA student, called Ayden, decided to join us for the trip. By this point all of the “hard seats” were fully booked. Ayden was sold a “standing room only” ticket for the 13 hours. When I first heard this I thought it was a joke, but sadly for Ayden it was not. So we had three seats, four people, and 13 hours to figure out how to get comfortable. I went into the train station with a genuinely optimistic mentality.

    For those of you who pay keen attention to CSA on social media, you might have noticed a slight surge in marketing for our Xian trip in recent weeks. Well, I’m very glad to report a successfully delivered trip to the city, which first ignited my passion for ‘all things China’. For those of you who didn’t go however, all is not lost, for we have a wealth of

     to show as well as a timely write-up provided by my good self.
