Location: Xi'an, China

MapWe arrived this morning in Xi'an after a luxurious overnight train ride from Beijing. We didn't get much sleep, but glad we were not on indian trains.

Xi'an is another big city. It was the place were the first emperor to unite every province in china ruled from. It is his terracotta warriors that guard his tomb, and that is were we are headed tomorrow.

We are heading out to explore the city today. Xi'an is one of the only cities in china to still have fully intact city walls. We plan to ride the 14km around the city, on top of the city walls, whilst we are here.
