    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.

    ... about doing this as it's supposed to be one of the crazy things you do on the mountain. I on the other hand was 50/50 about whether I was going to do it.

    I think the art of pushing in a crowd is second nature to me now and as people began stepping on my feet to get to the front, I stood up, made a wide stance with elbows out and waited patiently.

    ... was too far to walk. However, about four days after I arrived, Mike informed me that we were going to the Bell Tower, a place akin to Times Square but on a much smaller scale. It dates back to imperial Chinese times and is at the epicenter of Xi'an. And of course, to get there we needed to take a taxi. My heart rate picked up as Mike hailed a cab.

    Xi'an, China - Hock, spit! Hock, spit! Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhock........spit! Annoying to read? Just imagine hearing that every corner you turn in China, every bus you ride, every hostel you stay in,
