We set off to Nanjing on Friday afternoon on the fast train. The train reached speeds of 309km per hour so it only took us 2 & 1/2 hours to travel the 630kms. I tell you it is the way to travel. Nanjing has a population of 8.2 million people and I think most of them were at the train station. Luckily the Chinese know how to build train stations to accommodate the hordes of people.
We didn't have a weekend of sightseeing like other weekends as Leo had to attend a dairy conference. There were 7 floors of shops in our Hotel so I had a look around the shops while Leo went to the conference.
