Muslim Street 穆斯林街 – Xi’an, China

Visited the Muslim Street (Quarters) yesterday and never again during a Chinese Holiday as it was full of Chinese tourists, i.e. packed in like a can of sardines.  We didn’t see too many Laowai (foreigners like me).  We did log in another 16,500 step day against the standard target of 10,000 steps/day – great.

My personal challenge for the day was the use of a 100mm prime lense as all too often I was up against people unable to move in or out for the shot.  See the featured image and the Bell Tower.

The Muslim Quarter and Bell Tower in the center of town will be a repeat for next week as the tourists get out of Dodge (US saying).   Today it’s a long walk around the 13.8 km long City Wall.  Will stay late for the night time colored light displays.
