From Nanning to Guilin

Just got back from Vietnam via train in the morning. Walking out of Nanning Railway station my first response to the surrounding was “China is so so so clean…and so so so spacious.” Never had I realized how China has developed in the recent two decades. I used to complain hopelessly about how dirty and chaotic China is. After this Vietnam trip, I surely admire the speed of development of my home country. Not sure if it’s my age or my life experience, I honestly start to appreciate my own culture and proud of my Chinese identity. These never happened before. I was ashamed of my identity during my high school period.

China is great.

南宁去桂林的列车。售票员向我要了硬座的价钱,我说我选择硬卧。短短四个小时的旅程,这趟硬卧乘客寥寥无几。有种假富豪包厢的错觉。

刚从越南回来,踏入祖国的第一步便是南宁火车站。顿时惊呼祖国原来是如此干净宽敞明亮。在此之前常常抱怨国内卫生环境差,到处都是停车摆放不和谐的拥挤。结果这次的越南之旅彻底刷新我对祖国的认识。二三十年的发展速度着实让人惊叹。
