View of Xian from the Drum Tower


Xian was a city of contrasts. In some ways it appeared as a modern bustling city, but it was also extremely parochial.

This photograph was taken from the Drum Tower which in the 1980s was on the edge of Xian. The view from the Drum Tower in the opposite direction was rural with mountains visible in the distance.
