Xi’an

We visited Xi’an in January, mainly to see the Terracotta Warriors.

The main pit is really big.

The warriors all have different expressions, although some of them are missing their heads!

Each one has to be put back together like a giant jigsaw puzzle.

There is a lot of detail in each statue.

We enjoyed our day there.

Xi’an was also quite nice.

We had good food in the Muslim quarter market.

The restored city wall is complete and you can cycle all the way around it. Plus they were putting up lanterns ready for Chinese New Year when we were there.

There are some nice building including the Drum and Bell Towers.

But you can see from the haze in the photos that the air quality was terrible.
