Biking on the city wall was incredible. It took about two hours to go around the entire wall, which allowed us to see much of the city from an interesting perspective. Afterwards we went to the bell tower and the drum tower, two ancient buildings at the heart of Xi’an. We then navigated the bustling Muslim street and followed the scents of a hundred kinds of delicious smelling food. We also got to visit one of the oldest mosques in China, where Arabic and Chinese words were engraved together on stone objects. That night, I met some friendly locals who were my age, and the next day I went and sung karaoke and shopped with them and their friends. It was fun getting to experience a day in the life of a Chinese teenager. Today, we’re about to head out to take an overnight train to Nanjing. I’ll let you know how that goes soon!
