Home » Xian (西安)


Xian was a good change - less busy and less polluted than Shanghai or ChongQing. The city also had a complete original Ming Wall. A narrow strip of a narrow parkway ran along the wall, and I took opportunity one of the mornings to jog around it. The plan didn't completely pan out since that morning also rained until 6:40 a.m., giving me less than 40 minutes instead of the hour or so I had budgetted. In the end, I only ran some some 3/8 way around the wall before cutting into the city to loop back. Besides running around, I also took a couple of nights to walk around the Muslim Quarters, around the old city, including the Bell Tower, and to enjoy various spontaneous concerts that seemed to form in the various parks around the city.
