Join me in Xian a food journey!! Xian’s Muslim quarter is full of colourful, interesting food and simply interesting things to see. It was an absolutely fascinating place to wander around and an even better place to eat!

      Thanks Jennifer! I have an old Canon 400D which I love, and would love to update one day soon. BTW – I’ve been slowly making my way through ‘News From Tartary’. It’s such an interesting read, especially because it was less than 100 years ago they made their journey!! So, thank you once again for the lovely gift it’s been a great companion on my journey on the Silk Road.

    Yarrrrm! Those noodle dishes look so so good – I really love Chinese Muslim cuisine, I find it fascinating that two very different cultures have given rise to this culture… and the result is simply delicious. Love it!
