so only my stop in pisa was quicker than this stop in xian. we flew from beijing to xian to see the terra cotta warriors. their a pretty cool group of status. 8000 found to date, and not one of them is the same! it’s too bad that my connection is so slow, because i would have pictures of all of this stuff to show you. all to come. we fly out early tomorrow morning to guilin for a couple of days in what they say some of the finest scenery around, the “finest under heaven.” i’ll let you know in a couple of days. it was homan’s birthday today too! he got all red after a couple of shots… so funny!
