As expected, the air is awkward with no one attempting to break the ice.
I ask the guy sitting next to me if he's traveling alone. He is. He's from Ireland and works at an electronics company in Seoul. He doesn't talk very much.
The young married couple next to us introduces themselves. When I ask where they're from, he says "Washington DC" I still don't know why Americans give their state or city when asked where they're from. Anyway, they seem nice, but also not very talkative.
Most tables in China are round and have a Lazy Susan. The veg option was OK for me - there was rice, a tofu soup, egg, pumpkin and some watermelon.
