    Xian Muslim Markets

    April 17, 2018 in China ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Today after going to the terracotta warriors we took a bus ride to the Muslim markets. After arriving I went with du Lao Shi to get local ice cream. Du Lao Shi got a wasabi and chilli ice cream that he despised greatly. I however did not mind it and caused it to be less of a money wastage! We then went onto the street where we got some sugar coated strawberries. After that the great du Lao Shi left us and we continued through the markets constantly being honked at by passing scooters. I then bought a flying minion and we began the journey home. By SamRead more

    Xian Terracotta Warrior

    April 17, 2018 in China ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Today we travelled to a factory where they replicate and manufacture terracotta warriors, we say how they were made in a variety of sizes, there was quite a large shopping area with furniture, clothing, jewellery and of course terracotta warriors, many people including me got 15cm sized ones, however you could get a series of packs and sizes, we also saw the ones that the school owns. After that we went to the actual terracotta warriors, in the first pit there is around 3000, we then had buffet lunch before heading to the other pits and see two bronze chariots which took 8 years to rebuild. We then left towards the car/bus park to leave for the Muslim street markets. By AshtonRead more
