Ruixian Fan and the K165 work unit have arrived at the Xi'an train station. Ruixian receives a phone call. The team heads to the staff waiting room. Some of them continue to sleep, chat, or play games on their mobile phones. Ruixian reads a book. Then she helps distibute the trashbags for the K165. Once she is finished she goes back to reading again.
