My guide book said not to miss the Muslim Quarter in Xian and when we asked about it, our hotel indicated that it right behind the Marriott on an adjacent street. How handy. The quarter is a series of winding streets, not on our tour, so we escaped while others were out at shows and strolled through the streets. Found two amazing restaurants, reasonably cheap and delicious with real ethnic food. Pictured is Carol and Sandra, two intrepid explorers and always up for a night out of the tour. We are eating local fish cooked over a bed of mushrooms, onions, cabbage, carrots and other vegetable delights. Poor Tom, no beer in Muslim establishments.
