Update from Mrs. Brown
The kids had a good workout this morning riding 13.7km around the city wall. Lovely blue sky here! These boys were the first around the wall! We are on our way to lunch and will update again this afternoon.
Oh what a day! After our great adventure around the Xian Wall this morning we headed off to a buffet restaurant for lunch with a handmade noodle demonstration. It was fascinating watching the noodles being pulled, stretched and whacked into long strands before being cut into noodle lengths. Served fresh in some broth with a selection of toppings.
Then we headed off to the Tang Dynasty park! We explored inside and outside many Tang style buildings and watched some performances including a musical demonstration, a traditional wedding ceremony and a procession of horses. The children finished their experience in the park with a time to play on a children obstacle course or rest in the shade.
Lastly we headed for dinner and then returned to the hotel to enjoy some time relaxing with friends before showering and lights out at 8.30pm. Very much looking forward to the Terracotta Warriors tomorrow!
