China - Day 5

China Day 5:

From Kurt Samuels ‘20:
Today we got to experience the Xi’an city wall. It separates the inner and outer parts of Xi’an. The humongous wall was thirty nine feet high and fifteen kilometers in length. After scaling a intimidating flight of stairs we arrived at the top where we received bicycles for the journey across the length of the wall. Some of us used the time to zoom across the stone wall while others took it as a time to take pictures of the city. Afterward we handmade noodles for dinner. Delicious! And to cap off the day we had a chance to explore the Muslim market. Exotic food and drinks galore from tentacles, to durian and coconuts was a wonderful experience.

Evelyn Perfall ‘19:
Today we saw the Terra Cotta Warriors! Our guide and Ms. Hardwick each gave us some information of the history of the tomb on the way there, and then we spent the morning walking through the museum. This afternoon we attended a noodle making class, where we helped cook our own dinner (or tried to, at least). Lastly, we took the subway from our hotel to the Muslim district of Xi'An, where we spent the evening exploring the market with its many street food stands and tiny shops.
