Silk Road Day 9: on the train

This morning we left Xian and are travelling to Jiayuaguan, which marks the end of the Great Wall of China. We have travelled through some lovely mountain scenery and also the desert. There are farms everywhere and I don't know how they make a living.

Tonight we spend our first night sleeping aboard the train. The beds are very narrow - I hope I don't fall out! As we have two compartments Kendall is sleeping in the other one so we both have a lower bunk.
