Terra Cotta Warriors and Alan
Wednesday, April 03, 2013
Visit to Terra Cotta Warriors. Pretty darned impressive. Took lots of pictures.
Visit to art school. We tried our hand at calligraphy.
Got back later than expected. Alan was waiting in the lobby of our hotel. We ate in the hotel restaurant. It was the strangest tasting bacon cheeseburger I’ve ever had. The fries were delicious. I’ll pay for that on the scale!
We got in a pedicab (actually ran on electricity) for a ride to the Bell Tower. As soon as we got out, Barbara was there! Said a quick hello and then she wandered off. We meandered around there before heading back to the motel. Took the wrong street initially but Dan knew we were on the wrong track. Turned back and got on the correct road. Then we bumped into Doug. He was heading for McDonald’s so we went with him. He had a dinner while we had coffee/tea and muffins. Ended up walking back to the hotel. Had good conversation with Alan. His step-dad passed away last week. He is confused because he never believed it possible but his step-dad embezzled a LOT of money from his clients. Now his mom is having to deal with that.
