7 Hours in Xi’an

A few weekends ago I booked a plane ticket to Xi’an for the day to see the Terracotta Warriors. I only had 7 hours to see the warriors and eat, but it was more than enough time. My plane landed around lunch time so I headed to the Muslim Quarter, inside of the old town walls, to grab a bite to eat. The Muslim Quarter is composed of small alley ways bustling with life and street food vendors. I took my time wandering from stall to stall sampling the treats that looked the most delicious. Afterwards, I hopped into a car and headed out of the city to the pits where the Terracotta Warriors were hidden. The size of the pits were unbelievable and excavation is still going strong. Being so close to the ancient artifacts, more than 2,000 years old, was a very humbling experience. Check out this video of my whirlwind experience:   7 Hours in Xian Video
