Photographer's Note

This is a view of the upper part of the belt of ramparts that protected Xian. This ramparts created a square shape around the old town. During the bombings of Japanese during II War people used holes in the tick ramparts as a bunker. The place were restored and you can walk up there or rent a bike or pay for a small electric kart to take you around.
.........................
Essa é a parte superior das muralhas que protegem Xian, o cinto de muralhas tem o formato de uma quadrado e rodeiam a cidade velha. Durante os bombardeios japoneses na II Guerra eles fizeram buracos na muralha e a usaram como abrigos. As muralhas foram restauradas e hoje podemos caminhar sobre elas, alugar bicicletas ou tomar um carro elétrico e percorrer o percurso todo.
