I stayed one and a half day in Xian before leaving to Pingyao. It’s just another city of China on the way of developing. The air is so polluted because of the huge a mount of constructions not so far from the city center.
I got a trouble when shooting in a local market on Monday morning. While I was taking around the market, one guy stopped and tried to ask why I was taking photos in that market. Then after 10 minutes of arguing without any understanding between each other, all the people from the market gather around me with the searching eyes. They thought I am a spy and wanted me to delete every photos with fruits and food. I had no choice rather than follow their demand or I will be in a bigger trouble.
The highlight of the city is the 7 Sages hostel which is based on a very big classic Chinese row community houses.
