Xi’an: Day 3 | 西安:第三天

5月26日

If I had one day of regrets, this was the day. After the second day, we both felt so exhausted we thought to ourselves – hey, let’s take it easy today. Let’s visit places close by where we live.

So, we decided to go to the City Wall since it right opposite where we lived. The day started well but ended with us both feeling like we were going to faint. I want to start off by mentioning the weather this day was also around 35 degrees and we had decided to ride bikes around the City Wall. The City Wall in total is around 13km and for some reason, we decided to ride the bikes from 1 – 3pm. Even though we got there at 11. So…many..regrets….

The first 15 minutes of the bike ride was quite pleasant and we were like…hey! this is not too bad after all but after the first hour or so had passed, it started to feel like a calm ride around the wall and more like a chore that needed to be completed asap. All I remember thinking was how much I wanted to be able to finish the course and go home and lie in our air-conditioned room. Sue echoed my sentiments.

Note to self part 2: Don’t ride bikes/do any strenuous activity in 35 degree weather, especially, during 1 – 3pm. This is a short post because after that bike ride, we were both felt like we had some sort of heatstroke and decided to skip going to Beilin Museum and just go home lolol.

We vowed to ourselves to actually take it easy the next 2 days, especially since it was going to be 36 – 37 degrees and just spend our days eating the street food and shopping.
