... wouldn't have known it was a mosque if I had just walked past it unknowingly. There were a few clues though, writing in Arabic in places and no statues of gods in any of the temples.

The four of us wound our way home, three of us a little tipsy, late in the evening, and fell into bed. For us travellers, we had one day left in Xi'an, and there was no way we could cope with an early morning. Eventually, after a long sleep, we surfaced, and headed for the Big Wild Goose Pagoda on ...
