We have completed the first section of our trip. One rider is leaving (but will return to ride the last section in Turkey), and a few more have joined us.
On our rest day in Xi’an we went on a bus tour to see the Terracotta Warriors. First, our tour bus stopped at a place where they make recreations of the warriors, and we saw a kiln full of them. We also went to the first of many gift shops that we would visit throughout the day.
Then we went to see the real warriors. It was probably the busiest touristy place I’ve ever been to, a real zoo. But it was pretty cool to see the three pits full of warriors. I hope you can get a sense of how big the place is.
