things I learned on my Xi'an trip
photo 1: 俑: 陪葬的人偶 terra cotta warriors have some dark stories... these have a special term that emphasize they are puppets, as opposed to real humans that were (common practice in ancient times) buried with the dead 😱💀
photo 2: these were the Chinese lamborghinis 2000+ years ago. quite nice 😏 vroom vroom
photo 3: a castiron goose made in the Qin dynasty, wow I thought it looks like something made by the Romans.
photo 4: ancient Chinese also use special candel holders to create the best mood in their bedrooms. This also has a smoke and mirror effect, romantic!
photo 5: these are end pieces of the roof tiles in Han Dynasty. The middle one on the right, all the squigglies are actually 4 chinese characters. The lower left is 福 pretty crazy. #xian#terracottawarriors#秦始皇#秦朝#兵马俑#汉朝
Xi'an is a paradise of wheaten food. It is fun to forage for snacks at a local food street. Usually, we recommend parts of the Muslim Quarter that serve more Muslim food and Yongxingfang Food Street where traditional food from Shaanxi Province is gathered. It is near the East Gate of the City Wall.#xian#china#travelphotography#chinahighlights
