Just like I had promised myself: I didn’t do any walking today.
Instead I slapped on my blue slippers and took a slow stroll around town:
This pagoda is Binxian’s landmark. People here call it Bin Pagoda 彬塔 and it is originally from the Northern Song-dynasty (北宋 960-1126).
They’re fixing a large central square around the thing, and one of the dudes working there asked me to take his picture:
Other people didn’t really ask for it, but they got their picture taken anyhow:
See, I was actually looking for food, and not hunting for curiosities, but then I noticed these guys tossing inlays into a crowd outside of a shoe-store:
And then there was the “Xi’an Foreign Language University” ad:

WTF, an ad for a language school??
Whatever, I found a small restaurant to sit down and read for a while, then I walked back and took some leisure snapshots on the way:
…a market street:
…stuff to snack on:
…and the evening light playing with the power lines in front of my hotel:
Would it be fair to assume that anything not boring is automatically speacial?
Well, today was a quiet day.
Not boring – quiet.
