    1. It was so interesting visiting a place of worship here that wasn’t a Buddhist temple. The place felt very reverent. Several female visitors had to put on long skirts available at the entrance to cover themselves (if they were wearing shorts or showing too much of their bodies). One could also borrow shawls to cover exposed arms and shoulders. I ventured into the women’s ablutions building and was quickly (but politely) waved off. It was peaceful.

    1. Getting there was interesting. As we walked along the Beijing streets, with the usual cacophony of car horns and people talking in Mandarin, we knew we were close when we heard Arabic music. Them the signage changed from Chinese characters to Arabic. Several restaurants posted that they served Halal food. Very interesting.
