so we are currently in Xian; we have been here since Saturday. the 11 hour train form Beijing was fine.
when we arrived it was rainy and cold but it has cleared up sicne we arrived :-)
On Sunday we went to the Terrecota Warriors; they were awesome. We took the public bus there and some nice bus conductor barked at us in Chinesse, when we didnt reply because we dnt speka chinesse he seemed to get crosser but rob got out the lonely planet guide and pointed to where we wanted to go and we paid our money.... the driving here is crazy they just honk their horns at anyone in the way, drive at like 100 miles an hour; crossing the road is also an experiance.
We have also seen the Mosque here and the drum and bell tower. Last night (monday) we went to a night time lights, music and fountain show @ the great pagoda. it was very pretty; according to the lonely planet its the biggest fountain show in Asia........!!!!!!!!! ;-)
I have yet to get used to using the squat toilets so I either use the disabled or don't go.... the she pee maybe coming out soon!
we leave tonight for Shanghai; it's a 14 hour train ride from Xian....!!!!
