La calle Huimin fue la que me recibió en el barrio musulmán, una calle peatonal delineada por grandes árboles, todavía con algunas hojas que han sobrevivido el otoño.

Es una calle muy concurrida, a ambos lados hay una hilera interminable de puestos de comida de calle más deliciosa que me he encontrado en mi vida, quedó fascinado con todo, las vestimentas coloridas y muy hermosas, la gente siempre sonriendo, y la comida muy provocativa.

Xi’an era el punto de partida hace mil años de la famosa ruta de la seda, y gran número de comerciantes y estudiantes extranjeros venidos de los países árabes y Persia se establecieron en esta calle, y generación tras generación se fue formando la gran comunidad que es ahora.

Lo primero que probé es el roujiamo, es cordero marinado (los venezolanos lo pueden relacionar con la carne mechada), dentro de unos bollos de trigo, deliciosos, por supuesto los pedí muy picante, y esto sería mi desayuno todos los días que estuve en Xi’an, me dí un gran banquete a lo largo de la calle.

Los habitantes de esta zona es devota seguidora del islam, y forman una comunidad muy unida, que mantienen sus propias tradiciones y cultura, incluso en estos tiempos modernos, y se nota en el ambiente la sensación de ser una gran familia.

El barrio musulmán sería mi destino diario para comer y donde pasaría la mayor parte de mi estancia en Xi’an, y tuve la gran suerte y sorpresa de que mi DSRL funciono nuevamente el tiempo suficiente para poder registrar este increíble sitio.[/vc_column_text][/mk_custom_box][mk_padding_divider size=”10″][mk_custom_box padding_vertical=”0″ padding_horizental=”75″ margin_bottom=”0″][mk_fancy_title style=”avantgarde” tag_name=”h4″ border_width=”5″ size=”13″ line_height=”36″ color=”#bfbfbf” font_family=”Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif” font_type=”safefont” responsive_align=”left”]English[/mk_fancy_title][vc_column_text responsive_align=”left”]Xi’an was the first city in China to be introduced to Islam when Emperor Gaozong 唐高宗 of the Tang Dynasty 唐朝 officially allowed the practice of Islam in 651 AD and since, has made it home to a large Muslim community.

The Huimin street it was the one that received me in the Muslim quarter, a pedestrian street delineated by large trees, still with some leaves that have survived the autumn.

It is a busy street, on both sides there is an endless row of stalls of the most delicious food street that I have met in my life, I was fascinated with all the colorful and very beautiful clothes, people always smiling, and the food very provocative.

Xi’an was the starting point of the ancient Silk Road 1,000 years ago, a number of merchants and overseas students from the Arabic countries and Persia went to Xi’an for business and studying and they settled down on this street, and one generation after another, the descendants multiplied formed the great community than it is now.

The first thing I tried is the roujiamo, a marinated lamb stuffed inside a freshly baked bun, delicious, of course I ordered very spicy, and this will be my breakfast every day I was in Xi’an, I gave a great feast along the street.

All the Muslims here are the pious and devout followers of Islam so they form a tight knit community, which maintains its own culture and traditions to this day even in such a modern society, one always has the feeling to be with a great family.

The Muslim quarter would be my daily destination to eat and where I spend most of my stay in Xi’an, and I was very lucky and surprised that my DSRL worked again long enough to register this awesome place.[/vc_column_text][/mk_custom_box][mk_padding_divider size=”20″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mk_custom_box padding_vertical=”0″ padding_horizental=”0″ margin_bottom=”0″][mk_image
