The train ride to Beijing wasn't so bad. Before bed I went over to Brenda and Dave's "cabin" and we played some cards until Jake beat us all and there was no point in continuing. For a missionary he's pretty good at cards. ;)
After we freshened up at the hotel we headed to lunch. In Beijing everywhere we went to eat this was the arrangement in the dinning halls. I asked Lisa, our guide, why? She said in ancient times Chinese people believed that heaven is round and earth is square. All the chairs were placed perfectly in a square around round tables. I love the look!!
