CHINA 2005


Xian Garden Hotel, my favorite

Tai Chi master, instructing Peking ducks

Rickshaw (pedicab) tour of the old city

Nila & I shared one with Driver #17

A kindergarten class was at play when we arrived,
having a wonderful time


In the classroom, after the kids pulled us tourists in
to sing and dance—to Jingle Bells!


Portion of living room in a small home
in the old city center


The kitchen, and the cook

Roofed but open-air market, great-looking produce; many Chinese buy their edibles daily

This lady was interested in my digital camera,
so I showed her this photo of herself in the viewer


Long view of terra cotta warriors—huge!

Side view, showing the dug-out trenches

No two faces are alike

Gate to the tombs that these warriors guarded

City wall and gates surround the old Xian, the capital of China 2,000 years ago

View of a city within a city

Scene from the Dynasty Show

Beautiful scenery and colorful costumes
