Taking the Bus in Xi'an

The taxis in Xi'an are few and far between–I tried a few times and never managed to hail one. Fortunately there are two other great ways to get around the city. The first is by tuk-tuk. The second is by bus. The buses are really convenient in Xi'an. You can plot your course on Google maps or Baidu, and it will tell you which bus to take. All the buses are either 1 or 2 yuan, and it says the fare clearly on the money box when you get on. Just toss the money in and you're good to go. The buses stop at all stations, so simply wait in the back and get off. There are a couple good routes that take you around the old city and down to the pagoda, or out to the Terracotta Warriors. I had a weird fear about taking the buses in China, I guess I was worried that it would be difficult and everyone would stare at me. There's something universal to riding a bus in any city in the world–bus people just don't care about anything. Sure, an old lady might stare, but for the most part you could probably wear a full clown costume and no one would pay attention.

'Burgers' in Xi'an

A most delicious snack, and a street food you must try when you're in Xi'an, this is probably the oldest burger you'll ever encounter (it dates back to the Qin dynasty). Roujiaomo is a sandwich of savory meat (usually pork, though beef or lamb in the Muslim Quarters) that is normally topped with shredded lettuce and cilantro and laden with the taste of cumin and a collection of other pungent spices. The bread, or mo, has a crispy texture with a doughy center. One bite of this, and you'll be sold.

Muslim Yellow Cake on a Stick

When I first went here, my hands were filled with soft, sticky yellow cake on a stick, so I snapped a quick photo on the way back.

Oh, how to describe this delight? It was so sticky, almost like a British pudding. There was so much honey. The best part was the date crust on the bottom. I'd eat this cake everyday if they had it here.
