Drowning in Humidity

I've been in Xi'an for two days now, and to tell you the truth, I don't quite know what to make of it. Getting here, however, was quite an adventure. The train ride from Beijing to Xi'an took about 10 hours. To get to the train station in Beijing, I hopped on a taxi, which was basically a...

The Second Wall

We tried to go walking yesterday around the city at about 1:00 PM. It was a tad warm. 100 degrees warm. So, our walk only lasted about a mile. I took these pictures during our short walk. This first one shows a sentry point on top of the wall around the 'old' city. This wall is not the...

Arrival in Xi'an

Arrived in Xi'an (zhe ann) Sunday night after a 29 hour train ride. We were late by two hours. We left the train station in Xi'an for the hostel hoping to find a taxi. Well, we found plenty of taxi cabs, however, none wanted to charge us by using the meter. They wanted from 50-80 Yuan for the...

Days: 37, 38 and 39 - Xi'an

Xi’an es grande, con mucho tráfico y muy bien iluminada de noche. Inclusive la muralla de la ciudad se ve muy bonita de noche. Fuimos al show de la Dinastía Tang, una presentación de alta clase con bailes, música y cantos. ¡Estuvo muy bien pero un poco cara! Disfrutamos mucho el barrio...

Terracotta and Leather

First thing, we were on the minibus from the hostel towards the Terracotta Army. Before we got there though, we were told, we would be stopping off at a workshop / warehouse place where we would be able to buy reproductions of the terracotta warriors as well as other works of art. Ah, yes, I...

There IS a God! (but he's not a Chinese butcher)

The sleeper train to Xi'an was really comfortable, and a million times better than any Indian trains we had taken. We had been unable to get a ticket onwards from Xi'an in Suzhou, despite Sue's promises in Beijing that we'd be able to book trains from anywhere there. And the possible couch at...
