Childhood + quiet Liaohe - Chapter 36
When I was an adult, I met a conductor at the wine table and talked about railway affairs. I talked about the little-known stations on the main artery running through the whole northeast of China, and even the conductor friend was stunned: “brother, you are very cruel. Many of us can’t remember the names of these small stations. Business examination How do you recite it when you often lose points for it
The names of the stations on both sides of the railway are not only remembered by me, but I can even guess who the passengers are from, by virtue of their not too different pronunciation when they talk to each other: “uncle, are you from the area of Meihekou?”
“Auntie, are you from Shenyang?”
When the train passed Shenyang, the passengers on the train suddenly had a great change of blood. The passengers who came up like the tide of water began to speak the hometown dialect which excited me and felt very kind.
“Hello – what’s the matter? The floor is so wet that I almost didn’t slip!”

“Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!”
The sleepy passengers in the carriage were immediately awakened by my prank. They looked up at me and laughed happily. The stifling atmosphere in the carriage suddenly became active: “this child is so funny!”
“What a naughty bag

my aunt gave me a kiss: “my big nephew, you are tired. Don’t worry. When it gets dark, we’ll be home. Come on, big nephew, take a sleep in aunt’s arms. If you don’t sleep, you’ll be home! After that, my aunt pulled her coat over my body and said, “close your eyes and sleep!”
I closed my eyes happily and my head was crooked. In my aunt’s warm arms, I fell into a sweet dream.
