XI’AN

THE ASIAN SERIES PT10

Heading to a museum today with Salome (French Canadian) and 2 Chinese guys who only live about 2 hours away. Apparently it’s an effort for Chinese to get visas so they tend to travel their own country, which explains why all the hostels are full of them. Suits me down to the ground as they are nothing but friendly.

WHERE IS XI’AN?

CHINESE FRIENDS

Anyway the museum wasn’t great, all about old pottery, my worst nightmare. It wasn’t helped by the fact the Warriors had set the bar so high, I’m not sure my expectations will ever come back down again.

Me and Salome are loving having the boys around because even though their English isn’t great they are able translate everything for us. This was proven when they took us to an incredible restaurant which I would have stayed well clear of had they not taken us.

MUSLIM QUARTER

I’ve told Salome we are going to the Muslim quarter tonight as she hasn’t been and there is so much more I food I need to try. She’s a vegan so not a great deal she can have but loves her food as well. She stacked up for her ridiculous 30hr train journey to Nanning near the border of Vietnam.

LAST NIGHT

It’s amazing how many people look at you here, they just aren’t used to seeing tourists. If anything its quite humbling knowing they probably haven’t ventured further than the city they live in while its normal for me to fly to the other side of the world.

It’s international woman’s day today so the hostel played a few games tonight and we had to put make up on but nothing new for me there, I think it’s the 3rd time I’ve done it on this trip. Nothing mad for us tonight, early flight tomorrow
