China: Drum Tower and Environs

Okay, back to China again. In Xian there's the Bell Tower, and the Drum Tower. Both within walking distance so it's easy to see one performance than hurry and see the next performance. Well, we didn't know that, and didn't hurry. We did catch the tail end of the drum performance though. After we walked down a local street had some dinner then wandered through the Muslim market which is also part of the Muslim Quarter. Apparently the Great Mosque of Xian is a place to see. But by about that time we were done for the day and made our way back to the hotel. The next day would be very strenuous. And I will get back to that day...eventually...

Oh, one other thing. Every where I went, people were taking my picture. I returned the favour by taking their picture as well.

  1. Hey Paladin Phil!! Finally! LOL! It was truly worth the wait. These are some really great shots - especially the _PKE8371 - showing how
    "Modern China" is closing in on the Bell Tower. Nice juxtapositon of old and new with that one.
    But they are all GREAT photos.
    Thanks again my friend.
