... which collapse almost 2200 years later. (that’s that “Last Emperor movie I referred to in the last update), For its age, the Xian City planning was incredibly modern. Originally it was designed with the governmental centers (palace & other administrative offices) in the center of the city with a series of loops (or . . .rings as they are called) around the city for easy access.

First order of business was to visit the Buddhist temple...the Goose Pagoda.....referred to as the ...

... the Terracotta Warriors in 2005, and lawdy how things have changed. It used to be a relatively simple affair--buy a ticket and go in. It's now a massive complex, with loads and loads of shops and a hell of a lot more walking just to get in the place.

The Terracotta Warriors themselves, of ...

Day 3 in Xian

... tourists.   The crowds made the hiking a little less serene.  Not too different than the crowds you encounter in america's national parks.  Not many westerners were up there. I saw maybe 10 other westerners up there.  Overall, we had a great experience.  It was worth the effort to visit a sacred mountain in china. Tomorrow, we leave Xian and fly to Shanghai.  I don't know the internet situation at the next hotel, so don't worry if you don't hear from us for a day or two. Love Paul and ...

      Although the hotel is older, it has been renovated and updated. Not as nice as it could have been but friendly staff and excellent location make this a good choice.
