    Jan 13th,2012,I left school for home for my Spring Festival vacation.and the next day i arrived Beijing,capital of China.

    for my hometown is really near Beijing,all i need to do is:Get off the train in Beijing west station,take a bus to Beijing South Station and take a train home.it's quite easy.however,things seems not that smooth.

    as far as i got off the train in B.W.Station,i was confused for whether i should take a bus or just take the subway Line 9.i choosed the later,which was proved to be a wrong choice.for Line 9 is a new line,it doesnt cross with other lines,which means i cant get to B.S.Station by Metro from B.W.S.

    OK,i took the bus.in South Square of B.W.S.,there is a line 72 bus,beginning from B.W.S.,ending of B.S.S.that's my choice. which made me to wait there about 1 hour to get on,for there was so~ooooo many people waiting line 72.i can understand,as Spring Festival coming,many people r on their way home.but i cant understand that why cant they add a few line 72bus for just these days.i saw line 616 passed and passed,waiting long time but see no 72.finally,i got the second line72 bus when it came across.on bus i met a local person,who kept talking to me all the way..

    then i arrived Beijing South Station.so many people lining toward Ticket office.so i choosed auto ticket-seller and got my ticket.here i have to say,i lost 2 earlier train,coz their tickets has been sold out.(camera on Nokia 6120,so..bear it..)the area painted in red on the ticket is my name and my ID card number,so~i keep it secret.

    then,after waiting 2 hours,i got on the train.

    D339,which means 动车339,heading for Qingdao青岛

    can u believe? my seat is in the first car!(seems not a good position for some pessimism
    people)

    Modern Chinese Literature in Google translation!

    Good try. By the way Chinese have never been good at literature.

    I hope you reached home to join your family and celebrate.

    Modern life can be taxing, not only in China but everywhere!

    April,

    How do you in China celebrate the Spring Festival?

    It is quite cold out here in India, so would it not be cold in China also?

    Though, as per belief, today is day when India bids goodbye to the cold and people pray or enjoy with fetivity.

    Great.

    Lucky money is what is known as the Red Bomb?

    Dumplings = Jiǎozi 餃子?

    Was it pork or vegetables?

    Boiled. streamed or fried?

    I am told that the dumplings are served to bring prosperity.

    What is the difference between the Northern and the Southern dumplings?

    So April, did u depart from Qingdao where your school is to Beijing? Then upon arrvl @ BJ

    - options aa. shuttle from Station BWS to BSS by Bus #72 << u chose aa
    .............. bb. simply to ride on bus from BWS directly back to LF?
    - by Subway Line #9 from BWS of Beijing to Langfang

    Is my understanding correct? Being a regular (?) commuter btwn Beijing and Langfang, perhaps u can buy a Metro/Bus card so that u wouldn't have to buy tickets every time u travel in betwn??? Here in most cities such cards are available, locally called ' E-tong card' with which we can deposit and use for city traffic by bus, taxi, metro, often with a minor discount, and even acceptable in SOME supermarkets and stores

    Frankly I've been BJ twice only before. BWS or BSS are foreign for me:frusty: It's quite interesting to get 1st-hand ideas for travlling

    i never take a ride on line 9 before. there is a bus station in 六里桥,near BWS,but i hate bus of long way.i feel uncomfortable on bus.so i choose a short way bus and the hi-speed train.besides,this saves time.

    April,

    Thanks.

    When I was in Singapore, I was told that Red Bombs are given to children and White Bombs were when someone was dead!
