Over the for day weekend I got to visit the Shaolin Temple, which it was amazing. Besides all the great scenery and the huge mountains, what blew me away was the monks. They put on a show for us, showing their skills. All the monks that performed were between the ages of 5 to 18. The young monks were extremly flexible. The things they could do with their bodies were amazing. They even had a monk break glass with just a tiny nail.

When we got back to Xi'an I wanted to bike the city wall again, but this time with my host student, and I wanted to bike the majority of the wall with no hands. It would have been done if I didn't have to keep stopping for John because I was going too fast (that's wht he said, but I say I was going normal speed). Thus ending my 4 day weekend.

It must have been awfully amazing for you to be impressed with the things the monks did considering what you can do with your body when you dance, Chris! Thank you for sharing!
