Fuck sake, just realised I’ve had a post up for over a year repeatedly saying Nanjing when I was actually talking about Nanning - they’re over a thousand miles apart! Nice one autocorrect

Quite noticeable in Japan, less so in Korea in my experience (lived in Japan before & in Korea now)

Mate, Africa’s been a target of whatever you want to call it for centuries. And now it’s in China’s sights

Hi mate, believe it’s just the same trains that were already running those routes to/from Shenzhen. Train numbers also unchanged

Kunming-Vientiane railway will be opening in a couple of years, so you’ll soon be able to make it all the way to Singapore by rail.

Indeed. They built a massive facility on the China-Kazakh border for that purpose

Cheers! Haha yeah when I went to Italy hardly anyone spoke English. But that was over 10 years ago, maybe more young people speak it these days?

Sure, but no way there’s over 3 million in UK. And no way you’re in the negative pot mate - you can clearly hold a conversation in English!

Well it doesn’t say 5% can’t, it says over 95% can. Which doesn’t tell us much. Could mean 95.1%, could mean 99.9%. 5% would be 3.25 million people. No way you can find that many non-English speakers in the UK population.

I’ve done BJ-HK a few times by train (and Shanghai-HK once) changing in Guangzhou or getting off at Shenzhen to take MTR. Not many others going end-to-end on those trips, to be sure; direct HSR obviously faster & easier so will be interesting to see how end-to-end competes vs air
