Speaking

Last Monday my brother in law, two friends came home and they visit us because they want to know a little bit Shanghai, another two cities.  On Tuesday they relaxed  and on Wednesday they left to Beijing but my husband  took  them to Hongqiao station. The driver first  left my husband at airport and then  left them at the train station but immediately they showed their tickets to a security guy  and he said them that they are at the wrong station. My brother in law told my husband, but my husband was in flight, all of them called me but I’m asleep at that moment.  I didn’t reply they took a taxi because they hoped to arrive to the other station at time, but it was impossible., so they were in a dire need of a new ticket.
