I checked out of the hotel pretty late since my train wasn't until noon. I took the metro to the train station and killed time in Starbucks. It was an easy four hour train trip to Beijing. I had an aisle seat so I got up and walked around a lot.
The train arrived at the Beijing South Railway Station. I still had my Beijing metro card from the last time and I was surprised that it still worked after about five months. The hotel was easy to find and it was a few long blocks from the subway station.
In the evening I walked over to Wangfujing night market food street and had some crappy duck meat that was mostly fat. It was really cold in Beijing but the air was pretty clear for a change.
