    Thank you for your asking. We had returned our home safely without the influence of the virus. I really impressed by China’s high speed railway system. When the train gets started, it’s like a flash. The facilities on the train is tidy and the first class seat is roomy. We do hope that our country can learn the high-tech from you.
