    Early to Rise

    September 30, 2018 in China ⋅ 59 °F

    Despite the early hour, I’m already wide awake. I’m hardly sleeping on this trip but I don’t think that it’s because of the time difference. This is the most exciting trip I’ve ever taken and I don’t want to miss a moment of it. I’m sure not sleeping very much will catch up to me later but hopefully then I’ll be back home. I can sleep then.Read more

    Breakfast Time

    September 30, 2018 in China ⋅ 61 °F

    Despite looking a lot nicer than the Beijing hotel’s restaurant, the food looks to be about the same meaning that there is very little for me to eat. I’m happy with buttered toast though. The bread is good, and filling, and the butter is that sweet butter that I like. It’s rarely offered in the restaurants in America. I wonder why because it’s very tasty!Read more

    Blue Hour View

    September 29, 2018 in China ⋅ 68 °F

    While Kathy was taking a nap, I set up the tripod and decided to get a few good shots of the view from our hotel room. I was very tired and wanted to nap a bit but. Didn’t want to miss this great blue hour opportunity for pictures.Read more

    Out and About

    September 29, 2018 in China ⋅ 66 °F

    Kathy was feeling very hungry when she woke up so we decided to go outside and look for somewhere to get food. There wasn’t much around but it felt good to be out exploring again. I’m hoping that we can find a restaurant that Kathy can eat at.Read more

    Dinner, Finally!

    September 29, 2018 in China ⋅ 64 °F

    We found Weijia Cold Noodle, a fast food type of restaurant, right near the hotel. They only served Chinese food so, while not really for me, it was a good choice for her. She didn’t think that it was the greatest food, being kind of spicy, but at least it filled her up!Read more

    Mass Transit

    September 29, 2018 in China ⋅ 66 °F

    This is the entrance to the subway system in Xi’an. I wanted to go down and see what the trains here are like and, possibly, get another transit card for my collection. Kathy didn’t think that it was a good idea since it was getting late, the streets were nearly deserted, and we had no idea how safe this area was at night, especially for foreigners.Read more

    Our View

    September 29, 2018 in China ⋅ 73 °F

    This is the view from our hotel room. It’s so much more impressive than the views we had in Beijing and Chengdu! Xi’an seems to be a much more modern, and built up, city. I like it here!

    Good Night

    September 29, 2018 in China ⋅ 66 °F

    With a last look out the window, we’re ready to go to bed. It’s been a very long and busy day and we’re completely exhausted. I know that we’re going to sleep well tonight!
