Xi’an and Guilin


— Xian, China


— Guilin, China

These two photos were taken in two ancient cities in China. Xi’an is one of the birthplaces of the ancient civilization in the Yellow River Basin area. It has a history of 1,200 years as a capital of 13 dynasties including the Qin Dynasty–the first emperor of Qin ordered to link all the walls in different regions into the Great Wall. Between 206 BC and 9 AD, Xi’an became the world economic and cultural exchange center when the Silk Road was developed. Guilin is surrounded by two rivers and four lakes, 19 bridges connecting these rivers and lakes. I took the above photo while taking an evening walk along the lakeshore.
