Xi’an muslim quarter

Sandra Kies wrote:

Xi’an has an ancient grand mosque and bazaar. The muslim influence is in evidence in the kinds of foods offered in the bazaar, the faces and dress of the people. It is also a noisy and crowded tourist area, with thousands of trinket stalls, and some very aggressive salespeople. The street food looked and smelled amazing. The bread was interesting; it looked very middle-eastern. Huge piles of dates, peaches, and cherries were tempting. After all that, the calm of the mosque enclosure was a welcome respite. Only Dr Amir was allowed to enter the mosque, after attending to the necessary ablutions.
