Day 13 Xian
We had an easy flight to Xian, so easy that I actually don't remember it at all. Quick background: Xian is located in the Yellow River Basin and is one of the birthplaces of civilization. It has seen 3,100 years of development and 13 dynasties, giving it equal fame with Athens, Rome, and Cairo as one of the four major ancient civilization capitals. After landing, we dropped our bags off at our hotel and then headed to a Tang Dynasty dinner and show, which was filled with traditional song, dance, and colorful period costumes.
