A trip to the land of No English(China)!
The second city I visited was Xi'an which was beautiful and was a reminder of how beautiful ancient Chinese architecture might have been .It's a small city so it's better if explored through bicycles and I will assure you that it's safe to ride a bicycle even on the busiest roads in China.The landscape of the city suggests that it is trying to find a middle ground between the old and the new which is clearly missing in cities like Shanghai or Beijing.It's hard to say whether it becomes more of a gimmick of the traditional architecture or does it look like it is trying to evolve from the traditional architecture.I visited the drum tower , bell tower and the pagoda which are claimed to one of the most preserved forms of old architecture in China .Next on the list was the terracotta army ,which is a bit away from the main city and is one of the most important tourist attractions.It is said to have been discovered by a farmer who was digging a barren land but since most of the commodities are owned by the government so was the land, so the farmer did not benefit a lot out of that and he decided to write a book about it which is sold over there with his autograph if interested.Every soldier in the terracotta army is different and is currently a lot of them are under restoration .The fact that the farmer discovered this by digging and the government speculating at least a 6000 of these soldiers is a topic that remains under scrutiny.The stay in this city was concluded with a beautiful light and water show in front of the pagoda which forms as a beautiful site for a photograph where the lit city of Xi'an acts as backdrop!...
