Day 61 to 65 Lovely Xi’an

20160828_213119We arrived Xian by bullet train after 6 hours from Beijing. On our trip we could see a beautiful landscape with lots of green hills, mountains, rice fields, flowers, rural villages and urban cities. In the middle of Xi’an there is a very nice green park and riverlike moat outside the old city walls. The walls are rectangular and measures around 15 km. Since Xi’an is one of Chinas old capitals for many centuries it is understandable that they built these walls, but what a huge effort they must have laid into building them… We spent 2 hours biking in the sun on top of them – a great experience – but we were quite tired afterwards. Another attraction right outside Xi’an we were lucky to visit was the 2 500 Terracotta Warriors. Amazing!! What details and precision! Last thing we did was to watch a cultural show inside the ancient city walls – just fantastic – both regarding acting, music and colours we were astonished.
