Episode

Alfred arrives in Xi’an - in the province of Shaanxi. The Silk Road caravans used to end their long journey in this millenary city.

He comes by stylist Fan Yanyan’s studio and visits the great mosque of Xi’an - the oldest in China - in the neighbourhood inhabited by the Muslim Hui minority. Ideas and religions travelled the Silk Road as well as valuable goods: Professor Yue Yu tells Alfred the story of Xuan Chang, a seventh-century sage who went on a sixteen-year journey to India and brought back the core texts of Buddhism.
Our guide ends his journey with a visit to the tomb of Qin Shi Huangdi, the first emperor to rule over a unified China. His terracotta army looks as if it is standing guard over him, ensuring he remains undisturbed for all eternity.
