We had time for lunch in one of the city's famed restaurants before back onboard a train for our re- turn up to Beijing. Sitting in the cafe car, I had a cold drink, hardly finishing it before I saw Beijing's Yongdingmen Gate and hearing an announcement of approaching the South Station. What an experience! During the journey I had managed to record a feature for Radio AM774, about my impressions of that day. The new railway, a first for China, it was delivered right on time for the 2008 Olympics commencing on 8 August.
