THE MUSLIM QUARTER

Traveler Ni continues his trip through China

Flavio and I went to the local market called Erdaoqiao, in the Uighur or Muslim neighborhood. There was a beautiful mosque of brown and beiges bricks. In addition to many Uighurs, there was a camel for tourists to ride and take pictures of. It was a new market (if you consider the age of the region) of almost 200 years, with its stalls selling typical things such as carpets, musical instruments, bags, hats, food, skins, souvenirs, knives, clothes, chestnuts, condiments, etc.

Muslim quarter in Ürümqi.

I bought a VCD from the Shahrizoda band that I loved. The group was three beautiful Uighurs from Uzbekistan who were making great success in the countries of Central Asia and Xinjiang as well. Their songs were played incessantly in all the local stores. On Youtube you can see some clips of the them. We had lunch right here and had ordered some unremarkable food that I neglected to photograph. I bought a VCD from the Shahrizoda band that I loved.
