Triple Bunk Trains

I don't think it's any big secret that I love public transportation. I LOVE IT! I love it like white people like sour cream. Sadly, Sacramento's public transport sucks, it's slow and inconvenient and did I mention it sucks?. This of course is in contrast to Portland, OR, the shiny city on a hill that I still dream about. When I think about Portland, ironically the clouds part and angels sing... but I digress, this post is supposed to be about China.

Must. Stay. Focused.

I will forever remember that China is the country that introduced me to the joy of trains with sleeper cars. This my friends is like magic. You pay $30 bucks get on a train, sleep all night in a comfortable bed. Wake up, eat some Jiffy in a squeeze tub and sesame crackers for breakfast and arrive at your location having saved money on both a flight and hotel night. It is SO WONDERFUL! Did I mention that I love public transportation like white people like sour cream?

PS. Debs sent me this awesome video explaining how to cheer in Chinese. Jia-yo!
