Today was the last day at Fujian Province as the 5-day tour came to a close. The day was very good although the morning activities were not so exiting. However the afternoon opened up really well and we went around WuYiShan doing some last minute shopping ahead of the long train ride back to Nanjing. We are currently in the train awaiting departure and its lucky that we have power so I can make this quick update.
The train back to Nanjing will take approximately 14 hours overnight so we have to make good of this time, talk to many Chinese, a good opportunity to improve our speech. Anyway here are todays pictures.
After spending some few hours on the street, we had our last supper in Fujian at the hotel after which we proceeded to the train station. Because WuYiShan is a small town, it is not served with China’s high speed train, but rather with the slow K-Train.
The Fujian Tour has come to a close and personally I would like to thank our school and the Confucius Scholarship council for this opportunity. I have learn alot and spoken alot of Chinese. These 5 days are equal to hours spending pouring over textbooks. So if you want to speak good Chinese, talk Chinese. The dialect was abit difficult to understand but that really motivated me. As I prepare for another 14-hour dose on the train, I think before I close my eyes I can find a few Chinese people and have a chat.
Otherwise see you in Nanjing.
