Peggy got us safely to the airport the next day, where we said our goodbyes and got on the flight to our next destination of Xian. Once we got our bags, we headed out the door and saw the beautiful sight of a Chinese man holding a sign bearing our names. His English name was Kenny, and like Peggy, he was in his mid to late 20s, and very friendly.
He took us straight from the airport to that main attraction on our half-day of checking out life in Xian, the Wild Goose Pagoda.
It's a beautiful ancient building with an interesting history. But it's location created something of a fascinating juxtaposition. The local government had invested some money in reviving the surrounding area, bringing in some shops and restaurants, including the first Papa John's we've seen since leaving home in December.
