After a pleasant bullet train ride, we arrived at Xi’an just as the purple night sky was setting in. Our hotel was just in the middle of all the night life and we were immediately immersed in the neon lights of the street and the radiant personality of Xi’an.
What’s special about Xi’an is that its home to a large portion of the Hui Muslim minority of China. As we walked past the Muslim Quarters, you could feel a different aura – different dress attire, a strong flavor of cooked lamb in the air, and other specialty foods.
