A return to Xi’an

After my final train trip of my China journey I made it back to where I started – Xi’an.

A familiar park; good area to work out here too

It’s a strange feeling arriving in a place and feeling totally confident about where I am and where my accomodation is etc. I’m so used to being totally lost and uncertain (because I’ve only been to places I’ve never been before) that it feels like an alien experience.

I’d missed the vibrant street food in Xi’an – not that there isn’t that in other parts of China – it’s just that the Muslim/middle eastern influence makes it particularly interesting in Xi’an.

Always interesting trying different street food; hygiene standards leave much to be desired though…
