After our normal morning shifts, we headed to a small park to begin our Tai Chi/Kung Fu lessons. In the beginning, we did warm-up exercises consisting of jumps and kicks. We then watched our instructor demonstrate an incredible Tai Chi routine, which we then tried parts of it out. After a lot of practice, we finally mastered it. Apart from that, we also watched Thomas’ little brother perform his own Kung Fu routine. On our way back, we stopped at Jenny’s, the Western market, to get snacks for our overnight train journey to Xi’an. We arrived at the train station to depart at 8 PM. Our rooms consisted of six bunk beds of which had three beds on top of each other. After our long journey we finally arrived in Xi’an the next morning.
