Last missive from the eastern hemisphere

Saw the Terra cotta warriors in Xi'an. Super awesome. Also saw a tomb
filled with thousands of Tera cotta barnyard animals - goats, sheep,
cows, chickens, dogs, pigs AND piglets. Really cool. Xi'an is also
home to a thriving Muslim population, so we checked out one of the
biggest mosques in China (the minaret is a pagoda) and wandering
through the neighborhood.

Took the night train to Shanghai and spent yesterday afternoon in an
artsy-fartsy gallery neighborhood in the French Concession. Amazing
seafood dinner, with fish, prawns and two completely unidentifiable
sea creatures. Sad to be leaving this country!
