wow today we had just got on a overnight train to hani. we met this young couple Jane & Ben :) nice. unpacked a bit. no worry for food. dinning cart and we bought Lays chips, rits, saltines, noodle cups, and Jane gave us fruit and buns. oh thank you. fun. fell asleep quickly. goodnight.

good morning. today is my full day on this old train. we disced [decided] to watch the landscape for a while because we were in guilin. we talked to the nicest nicest Australian couple in the world Jane and Ben. had noodles for lunch and dinner. rested. we had to get up at 3 in the morning. woke up that time, went through customs and got onto a new train. Ben and Jane got a faimly, one mother and two kids, only 4 tiny beds, nobody was with us now so Jane moved over to ares [ours]. yay. got to Hanoi and we were happy.

Hi Anica,
Loved your journal about the train trip. How nice to meet someone to talk with on your trip. I think you did well getting all that Canadian food, too. We can tell you are having fun!

We met Jenn,Rob and Anica on the train from Nanning to Hanoi. The cabin attendent wanted my two asian daughters to be in one compartment and me in another! As you have read Jane moved and slept with Jenn and Rob while my daughters and I joined Ben. Fast forward to SUnday in Hanoi when we ran into JR and A on the street. We spent the entire day thru dinner together. When you are traveling there is A Wrinkle in Time, and as R said "I feel like we have know you for years!" We had a great trip to Thia Nguyen where we say the room where I adopted Jm almost nine year ago. Sounds like it is once again raining, my clothes have just dried out from last night. What good fun we had!

that of years.
