Xi’an…it’s not just about the warriors

From Luoyang, we boarded the high speed train and headed 230 miles to Xi’an. An hour and a half later we arrived. What a great way to travel. There is also a regular train, which is used by many locals due to the high cost of the high speed train.

First stop: An art museum.
A quick peek at different Chinese art forms and a lesson in calligraphy.


Then on to the Muslim district. What a feast for the senses. The market was fascinating. We could take photos of the food, but not of the people. So tempting.


If you watch the Amazing Race you may have seen the program where they made bread that was thrown on the inside of a hot, cylindrical oven. They were making that bread in the market and it was delicious. We also tried goodies made from hawthorne berries.

We had a delicious lunch at a Muslim restaurant…no pork or alcohol, of course.
