Xi'an is an ancient city which is credited as the most Eastern point of the Silk Road. We were able to walk and bike around the ancient city walls. It was a great experience to get out and see the blend of the modern city and many of the century old buildings within the walls.
There is a small Muslim culture that is present in Xi'an and we enjoyed the remainder of our short visit walking and sampling the foods in the Muslim corridor.
This was a short weekend trip that we were thankful that we were able to squeeze in before we left China.

|This picture gives you an idea as to the size of the excavation site.|
|Notice that each soldier is unique.|
|Each warrior was originally painted in bright colors. Once the air hits these ancient pieces, the paint quickly fades away.|
