The train to Shenyang

This weekend, Marcy and I headed north of Dalian to the Shenyang, capital of Liaoning province and ancient capital of China. It was a four-hour train trip through the dusty, rural farming areas of Liaoning.

There was almost nothing growing yet, so I assume it's planting season. Farmers 
with rusty bicycles could be seen far out in the dessicated fields, hoeing up huge plumes of light-brown dust. Others walked behind sluggish oxen, plowing the fields the ancient way.
