Bullet train today, from Beijing to Xi'an, originally the capital of China and home of the Han and Tang dynasties.
journey took about 6 hours to travel about 1400km, much more comfortable than flying, and interesting to watch the changing countryside. Lots of small, single storey houses between the big towns and cities, with small plots of land …
Adventurous bus trip - pah! We left the hotel, walked 3 minutes along the road and caught the 306 destined for the bus terminus. 10 Minutes later we were at the very busy bus station in the north east of Xi'an. No problem.
On the bus, we met Nina and Elay - 2 students who were visiting Xi'an - who offered advice on where to get the bus to the …
The weather was glorious when we visited the city wall around Xi'an. We took the service bus to the South Gate, paid our fee and climbed the steep steps to the top of the walled courtyard where flags and lanterns fluttered in the breeze.
The wall was built by the first emperor of the Ming Dynasty to provide a fortified base to build and …

We spent a comfortable night in the Mercure in Xi'an. My only complaint would be the means of my waking. At one point I thought I was in a dream revisiting Disney land with our children and riding "it's a small world" for the 40th time in a day. However it transpired that it was a cleaning truck playing the annoying little ditty to wants pedestrians of its presence at top volume at 7.00a.m. In the morning. Luckily we were due up shortly after so no great harm done.
