cycling Xi'an's city wall

Newer Older

The Xi'an City Wall is the most complete surviving city wall in China. You can walk around the entire 14 km of wall, but we chose to hire bikes and cycle around it.
The surface was a little jarring on the bones, but it was a great way to see the city with a bird's eye view. Or at least - what we could see of the city. The morning was cold, foggy and eerily quiet. The stillness was only broken every now and then by the sound of fireworks, apparently celebrating weddings that were happening around the city.

    Fabulous perspective! Love how the details give you a sense of where you are in the world. Love that foggy distant view and the wonderful pops of red in the monochromatic landscape. What a great way to see this place. I wish I could have joined you by bike Jen! :D

    Wow Jen, you keep producing these beautifully simplistic photos that seem to perfectly suit the country you were in. (But it was probably a lot more complex than portrayed.)
