Day 1


The day started slowly with interviews of each other and more photo sessions than Paul would have ever believed he could handle. Out the front door we immediately met an assistant professor from somewhere in Europe who told us she happens to lecture about the Silk Road. The night before she had been the one who told us to quiet down, as if she had practiced the line in her head a hundred times first. We continued to the Xi’an Bell Tower then headed West. Later we discovered the hostel we had booked no longer existed. So, we had to walk an extra 5 km to a fancy hotel that Lisa and Vivian got for us. The two of them treated us to hot pot Sichuan style (spicy!). We are going to bed sore and satisfied, looking ahead to figure out our urban camping tomorrow.
