Spend a day walking on the water in Tianjin with a legendary elephant. A zoologist estimates his ass to be approximately 80 years old, but we’ll find out when we walk on water with him and the rest of his Tianjin Hash Herd.

  • WHEN:
    Saturday, January 18, 2014
  • WHAT:
    Walk on Water and Elephant Ass’s 80th Birthday regalia
  • HOW:
    You will buy your own round trip train ticket (through ticket office or train station)
    We will buy same day train tickets at Beijing South Train Station (Line 4). 
  • Where to meet:
    Beijing South Station – Starbucks on Lower level (where you come off the subway—not the Starbucks on the 2nd floor) at 9:30 a.m. sharp.
    If you arrive late, you’re totally on your own. 
    We will buy the following train tickets (each person, individually; each one way ticket costs 54.5 RMBs—bring your Identification Card/Passport):

    – C 2013 Leaves Beijing South Station 10:15; Arrives Tianjin Station 10:48
    – C 2146 Leaves Tianjin Station 22:27; Arrives Beijing South Station 23:00

    At Tianjin Station, we will take a 5 mins. taxi to the TEDA light rail station.
    We take Line 9 to TEDA (approximately 40-60 minutes).
    We then take a 5 mins. taxi ride to Jack’s Pub #1 where we meet up with all the Tianjin Hashers around 1:00 p.m. and leave for the run site together at 1:30 p.m.
    Total travel time (each way): about 2 hours–and we avoided the bus!

    Final destination in TEDA:
    JACKY´S PUB #1:
    Location in TEDA, on 2nd Avenue, Ruiyuan Block 25-4
    Phone: 022-66299197
    Location: ?????????y??25-4

    Run and local bus to run site in Teda: 60 RMBs
    Birthday dinner bash: 60 RMBs
    Round trip taxi in TEDA, light rail: 50 RMBs/person round trip
    Therefore, plan on about 110 RMBS for roundtrip train and 170 RMBs in Tianjin—about 280 RMBs total
