A Jian, Zhang Chi and Gou Zi took the train from Beijing to Tongliao. They made a promise that no one would speak during the trip, and whoever broke the rules would be punished. But it's still necessary to take some phone calls and ask for directions after you get off the train... For educated decadents, life is as if always in a state of intoxication, without goal or objective.
