In that big long monologue I subjected you to at the beginning of this
piece, I mentioned all the mosques. As I noted then , I did manage the
get just enough juice into my batteries to take a few photos in Xiahe
and of Labrang. This is the Xiahe Mosque – the only workable shot I
have, from all the lovely Mosques I saw throughout the regions I
traveled in. Note both Arabic and Chinese writing on the front, and
the crescent at the top of a very Chinese styled minaret.
