    Xi'an First Impressions

    November 9, 2017 in China ⋅ ☁️ 50 °F

    Waiting for dinner. We are behind the Drum & Bell Tower in the Muslim quarter. Xi'an is different again from Beijing and Pingyao, lots of traffic, lots of street life and the sadly the first beggars we have seen. We walked from our hotel about 200m to the tower and all of a sudden we were in a crowd of people all shouting to sell food, queuing for food and generally having a good time. Loads of stalls selling things on sticks including, I think, whole crab but as it was covered in batter it was hard to tell. As it is raining a little we have come inside to eat, Chang'An (Xian used to be called Chang'An) chicken for me, shrimp meat with nuts and vegetables for Dad and eggplant with long beans to share. As it is the Muslim quarter we are washing it down with a jug of water melon juice.... The whole lot is costing about £17 which about usual for dinner.
    On the table next to us they are settling an argument with rock paper scissors!
    Oops I seem to have ordered the long beans with chilli. All good though.
    As it is raining back to the hotel without lingering. This time we have studio apartment on the 11th floor inc mini kitchen (but I am not intending to cook!). It's quite a contrast from our courtyard room.

    The Muslim Quarter - a food bazaar

    June 4, 2018 in China ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Next stop was a walk through the bazaar in the Muslim Quarter of Xi’an. There is a very big Muslim community here, all from the North. They have brought many delicacies and you could buy anything here...from fried octopus on a stick (they were a bit freaky looking) to fresh durian to all kind of spiced nuts. It was a hive of activity, and very interesting!Read more

    Nachtmarkt in Xi'an

    August 6, 2018 in China ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    Um 18:00 Uhr geht es nochmal in die Altstadt von Xi'an. Die ehemalige Hauptstadt hat eine imposante Stadtmauer. Durch die ging es zum Nachtmarkt, eine Straße wo das Chinesischen Leben tobt.

    Wir haben Teigtaschen mit Spinat und lecker gewürzte Kartoffeln gegessen.

    Xi'an bei Nacht

    October 24, 2016 in China ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Ja ist denn schon Weihnachten...? Nein.
    Xi'an bei Nacht. Alles was geht wird beleuchtet. Sehr schön der Trommel- und Glockenturm. Wir hatten vorher schon lecker gegessen, deshalb haben wir am Lammfüsse Stand auf dem muslimischen Markt nichts gekauft. Nur bei den Süssigkeiten konnten wir nicht wiederstehen.Read more

    Muslimisches Viertel, Xian, China

    August 23, 2014 in China ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Eigentlich wollte ich noch die grosse Moschee besichtigen. Doch sie kann nicht so gross sein, denn ich finde sie nicht. Allerdings sind die Gassen im muslimischen Viertel auch verwinkelt, eng, unbeschriftet und voller Menschen, Speisen, Güter, Düfte. So dass ich bald die Moschee vergesse und überlege, in welcher dieser vielen Gassen ich zu Abend essen werde.Read more
