At 2010, beginning from Middle of August, we spend one month on going around several place of US.


After more than 11 hours flying from China to Los Angele by airplane, we decided to try a different travling way from LA to Tucson. No airplane any more. By train is a good idea. Here is Union Station of LA.


Train from LA to Tucson.

Every passenger post his ticket (see the green paper) on the luggage rack above his seat. Its easy for the train conductor to check the ticket. Before arrival to each stop, the train conductor will remind passagers who need to get off the train.

Everything is perfect except its too cold for us.



Looking through the windows of train.



In front of a store, peoples are singing and dancing.

During time at Tucson, we look around this city. This is the first time we visit Tucson at Summer, different scence and different feeling from what we have during show time at Winter.
