Arrival in Nanchong

We’ll start back with a few pictures from our Sept. 4 train ride from Chengdu to Nanchong.  After passing the security checks at the entrance of the train station, we funneled into the waiting area designated for our train.  There Becca seized an opportunity for cross-cultural learning and got a few tips on cross-stitch.  On the train, some enjoyed the countryside views out the window; others dozed.   With temperatures in the high 90s, we opted for the comfort of the Haigui center, ordering a lunch of fried rice from across the street, and studying  our maps while waiting for our host families to arrive.  (See host family photos posted earlier.)
