... vehicle right around the top if you want to. We walked along the East wall and saw quite a number of the original watchtowers.

Our final stop for the day was the Muslim Quarter of town. Xi'an was the beginning of the Silk Road, so people from the Middle East arrived and settled here very early on.

... after six but we could still sit outside dressed in short sleeved shirts. A big difference to Mongolia and very much appreciated! Tuk tuk home, this time with a lovely driver who so visibly showed his pleasure of receiving more than the price agreed upon, and again w had noodles for inner. A very nice meal costing peanuts!

... and many were destroyed, either way there is a ton of history in this city.

Our first day in Xi’an was a good one. We got up early to see the terracotta soldiers. The terracotta soldiers are about an hour outside of Xi’an, by bus. There was a line of maybe 500 people waiting to take the buses to where the terracotta soldiers are. There was an endless supply of buses though, so the line moved very fast. After 20 minutes, we were on a bus. The scenery was nice ...
