Arrival in Pingyao

Today we learned that it is very important to train engineers in China that they remain on time. This meant that we had exactly 4 minutes to get ourselves and all our luggage off the train. We managed the task well although Griffin had not yet attached his leg cast and had to hop off the train before it pulled away. Pingyao is not a modern city. In fact, it is the most intact example of an ancient city in China. This makes it very very old. You can tell this immediately as you leave the train station. We loaded ourselves into waiting carts and headed to the hotel. All around us were reminders of just how ancient the city is.
