Today was probably the longest day we have had in China so far. We woke up bright and early to make our departure from Tianjin and everyone was pretty exhausted from being up late the night before. I was pretty excited about the train since I have never traveled such a long distance on one and I have to say I was not disappointed. Even though we were on the train for 6 hours it went by really fast and we got lucky and met some really nice people on the train. The most amazing thing about the train ride was seeing all of the unique landscapes across China and I think this country is really beautiful. After we arrived in Wuxi, we met our new tour guide Joe who told us a little bit about the city on our way to the hotel. Once we made it to the hotel we ate a nice dinner and afterwards everyone was pretty beat from the day so we all went to bed pretty early. Overall, I was pretty sad to leave Tianjin but I enjoyed the scenery from the train ride and I am pretty excited for the next week.
