Last day in Lasa, afterward Yuya went to Chengu, Alex and I to Xi'an

IMGP2846




No pictures from Xi'an...the cause is I did not enjoyed Xi'an. Xi'an is just a tourtist attraction.

And Chinese were in holiday...so imagine 1.3 billion chinese in Holiday...people every were!

The muslim quarter of Xi'an was great: lot of meat and cookies...One Mosque realy beautifull and the quarter is very popular...but for me, that it for Xi'an.
