I'm still missing the interesting half of the Xian pictures: old muslim men wearing ENORMOUS round sunglasses, wrapped in white gowns and with skullcaps. Instead, here's what Xian is famous for, the terra cotta army. Honestly, I wasn't as wowed as I expected.. the zoo of Chinese tourism (complete with 3-foot replicas that will hunt garden gnomes) just defeats the idea of the timeless egotism that led to their creation. It also doesn't help the tranquility..
