... peony garden which was very impressive in full bloom. There was a nice little gazebo structure in the middle that provided a great place for a picnic and quite a few people were doing just that, enjoying the flowers and the pagoda as a backdrop for a nice little afternoon. We of course took way too many pictures of the national flower of China before finally heading back to the car to continue our adventures.

The final stop on our tour of Xi’an would be ...

... which is based on the main road just south of the South Gate. It’s a busy location, but then pretty much everywhere in all the cities we’ve been to in China has been busy – dense traffic, seemingly meaningless road signs and markings, and minimal rules for road use, none of which are adhered to anyway.

So, the farmers were given the equivalent of $3,200 for finding one of the most priceless finds ever in human history. The farmers were living off 3,000 RMB a year (about $500).

So, because of the random efficiency, I got to the bus before Alexi and Yao Hong were back from getting our breakfast (to go, obviously). I asked the "guard" if I could stay at the front while I wait for my friends and he obliged.
