Aloha to Xi'an - Muslim Quarter and Drum Tower

Our guide, Betty, treated us to a walk through the Muslim Quarter.  With Xi'an as the departure point for the Silk Road, traders moved to China and brought their culture with them.   The neighborhood offers its own unique vibe.

Locals and tourists alike enjoy the wide variety of food for sale.

Notice the writing in Chinse and Arabic!

This cat slept through the hub-bub.

The Muslim Quarter leads to the Drum Tower, part of the medieval wall that circles the city.   We thoroughly enjoyed the history, culture, and warmth that China offered us!

  2. The trip must have been amazing.

  3. Great pics Kim, and thanks again for sharing your trip with us.

  4. I love visiting places that sell food like that! A unique opportunity to try different things. Thanks for sharing all this with us.

  5. And the great tour keeps on coming! I love it. And the sleeping kitty is very cute.

  6. All so interesting and of course I like the sleeping cat!

  7. I used to have a cat who looked a lot like that one, only he was a little lighter in color and bigger! My male cats tend to end up being about the size of a small dog, lol. My big boy is about the size of my Pekingese Ming (who is a Chinese dog!)

  8. Oh My look at all the treats for sale....
    Great pictures Kim.
