It has been a wonderful day. I had a great start with a full nights rest along with a big breakfast at the hotel. One of the first things we did today was visit the Tiger Hill park. This place was spectacular because it has been one of the greenest places I have seen in a while. I was already satisfied with the park in the first ten minutes of arriving because just after the two guards guarding the entrance we got to see some of the Terra cotta worriers. After that we watched a very great show. The best part was that we didnt know what was going on because the whole time it was in chinese. We used the tones of the story teller and the music to help detect drama or upcoming fighting scenes. The actors in the show were great on horse back and even did some stunts. Many men played on one side agains few on the other. It looked like they wanted one side to look very noble and powerful against the other. After the show we got a beautiful ride on a boat. Pictures can only describe what we seen because it was so beautiful. In every direction you can see chinese architecture sticking out over the horizon. We also lucked out because our boat didnt have nearly the amount of people the other boats had. More people seem to want pictures with us today. Maybe its because a lot of foreigners don't come this way much or that we have gotten more friendly but either way I like meeting the locals.
