During the flight, we got decent snacks and played gin rummy until it was time to land. Our stuff came quickly at the airport in Xi'An, and then we went looking for our hotel pick-up (when we reserved the room online, it said that we would get free hotel pick-up). Of course there was no one there waiting for us, and we ended up taking a bus downtown. Then we found a cheap tour to the Warriors, and got a free ride to the hotel.
Dude, it was cool. Check-in was fine, just for some reason I couldn't use my Chinese debit card. I guess it was too complicated. *shrugs* But the room- sweet! Not as nice as the room in Shanghai, but I'm only paying 298RMB for a room that the board at reception said would cost over 800RMB. We'd gotten a special!!! The catch- construction. But it wasn't too annoying, and the room was nice.
After a nap, we explored part of Xi'An, we walked down the main Food Streets, ate dinner (started off with a wonderful sweet & sour pork, followed by a good sesame beef and ended with an okay mutton soup dumpling that had too strong a ginger flavor). We continued walking, went to McDonalds for ice cream- had to get rid of the mix of flavors- went by the Drum Tower and Bell Tower and back to the hotel.
