April 21, Monday

After breakfast went to Hutongs (ancient alleys) for rickshaw ride. Visited a local courtyard home. The houses here do not have showers or toilets. Public toilets are available ┬áhere and there . Showers are a bike or bus ride away. We were in the lead rickshaw and the big guy was the leader of the pack. With the sign on his house the owner proclaimed he was a muslim. In the house we visited, the women lived alone and her niece painted the inside of snuff bottles for sale. Don’t use snuff, didn’t buy one.

Then went to Bell Tower for tea tasting ceremony

We then got a box lunch (not bad) and got on a plane to Xi’an (she on). Went to dinner (Place famous for its dumplings) then checked into hotel
