Got the Train Tickets to Lhasa

Just got word today that we got the tickets for the two-day train ride (!!!!!!) from Shanghai to Lhasa. I'm just hoping they'll let us out at Xining to stretch our legs a bit.

I've been told that I will not fit on the sleeper beds in the train. I've also been told to bring a roll or two of toilet paper.

I bought an extra memory card for my camera. I also bought some warmer layers to put on top of the sweaters and fleece that I already have.

We leave Sunday night at 8 PM. Arrive Lhasa at 9 PM Tuesday. We'll be back in Shanghai on the 8th.  

Plenty of pictures to come, I promise :-)
