Dear little baby laptop diary,
Today, August 9, is our third year anniversary! No not you I don't even know you! Z and I got married three years ago today! Yay for us! Happy anniversary! Unfortunately, our meticulous schedule has us departing on a 26-hour train today,from Guilin (we had to get a car back there from Yangshuo for the station) to Chengdu. Not the most typical way to celebrate the occasion, but we are on an adventure. Because of this special day - but really because the last few trains have been abysmal experiences - we booked out the entire cabin for the first time. The ticket booker we used said they buy the other beds very often for people who want it to themselves, and they buy the other two beds as children's tickets (so they cost less), for fake children. Or, as we were hysterical to see the agents refer to them as, "ghost children". They book the kids' tickets under fake names, so we were excited to see what fun Chinese names our fake children got.
