Some local activity in Xian

Here's some local scenes from Xian when I took my sister there to see the Terracotta Warriors. I like the street activity in Xian, especially the Muslim area.

A local knife sharpener:

The Great Mosque was very lively on Friday around 1 PM. I'm surprised they actually let us in to look around during that time. It's the main prayer time of the week.

Saw these two folks near the Large Wild Goose Pagoda. They reminded me of American Gothic so I had to sneak a photo of my own. They stood there pretty much in the same pose for about five minutes.

These are some local Muslim sweets made from green bean flour.
