Or maybe it is normal for a city of 4 million to have a modern railway station with fast trains and proper facilities.
Several shops sell food, drinks, small stuff. Everything is payable electronically with Wechat or Alipay. I am, again, one of the few, maybe the only, customer using cash. Oh wait, this really old man is another one I feel less lonely! Not that I did not try.

As for paying, I am resigned to always be the only one using cash in the supermarket, in the farmer's market, restaurant, everywhere really, though my Mao portraits banknotes have never been rejected. At the station's toilet dispenser I was saved as I had paper tissues in my handbag!

A fast ride of about two hours and I am again in Hong Kong. I had planned to go for a walk, but there are demonstrations in town, one protester was shot, and I decide the airport lounge is a better place to be for today.
