Xian China Museum

The Small Wild Goose Pagoda grounds also contains a museum. Here they have pottery, jade, and other items from the cities past. There's a large model of the Tang dynasty palace, a map of the city, and other items. We were a little rushed so we couldn't spend as much time as we wanted in the museum. The whole area is about a good half day to just explore the garden as well. A quick stop back at the market near the Drum Tower and we were on our way again. Next stop Chengdu and Sichuan province. _PKE8916 _PKE8892 _PKE8915_PKE8912 _PKE8911 _PKE8899_PKE8910 _PKE8907 _PKE8906_PKE8903 _PKE8904 _PKE8902_PKE8900 _PKE8898 _PKE8897_PKE8895 _PKE8894 _PKE8917_PKE8920 _PKE8919 _PKE8921_PKE8922 _PKE8927 _PKE8930


  1. Heh...looks like a regular Wild Goose chase!

  2. Hi Phil - this is realwest,still having problems with TypePad,I'm afraid.
    I just had to say GREAT PHOTOS again my friend!! In fact, in terms of composition and detail, these may be my favorite of all your "China Photos" - really beautiful sujects and very finely and artfully photographed.
    Thanks again!!

  3. Whats the blue machine in the second-to-last photo?

  4. Ahh, the "blue machine". What it does is roast walnuts. It's filled with raw shelled nuts and sand then heated from underneath. There is a mixer that turns slowly that will evenly heat the nuts and sand. In the market street you saw them about every third store.
