Changbaishan is located near Yan Ji, which is the china-north korean border.ppl there are korean by ethnicity and chinese by nationality due to history.
meBuddy Min and her buddy came to find me in beijing on 22nd june, i picked them upa dn checked them into a hostel which was not very good ( so sorry!)
on 23rd, after putting their luggage at my place, together the 4 of us went to meet the rest at the beijing train station
First we took a 23 hr train ride (sitting mind you) from beijing to yanji
we were so bored, lr and i walked abt...
after we explored we did jumping shot on the train corridor
the train was pretty clean and the cabin instructor kept cleaning and patrolling every half an hr so it was pretty cool...
until nighttime comes and we nd to slp ...cos the seat was uncomfortable for sleeping..but we try anyway
my sleepy look at 6am in the morning...i can sleep in any position..totally unglamorous, look at lr's expression
ok taking properly now
me, min and char
