Scenes From The Slow Train

There's nothing quite like riding the slow train through the countryside, surrounded by migrant workers, young couples, and all of those folks who are fighting like crazy to get on the fast train that is the Chinese economic miracle of the past several decades.  On this occasion, two months ago, we were heading six hours out into the countryside of Hebei Province, visiting some friends and making some new ones along the way.

We'll be documenting that journey over the next few blog posts.  Spoiler alert...No dog bites this year!

In the meantime, there is plenty of time for looking out the window and reflecting on where we are and what we are doing, eating simple, peasant-oriented food (about $1.50 for that set meal), and of course for Julie to make sure everything is in place!
