More than 1000 truck drivers attended this festival and took a look of this new truck with special features. At that morning, I also took water, coffee, laptop with me to test the mini kitchen and wifi. The wifi is pretty good, I finished update an article online very fast but I failed to enjoy my hot coffee because I did not have a kettle. Never mind, next time I will try a hot-pot and maybe take a vlog if you would like to see.
