To Yinchuan

Today we had to follow our guide since we were going to make two stops along the way.

The first was to go see the 108 Pagoda which were built to as memorials for Buddhists monks.

Then we went to see the imperial tombs of the Xixia dynasty, along with the attached museum which had artifact related to those tombs.

We then continued on to Yinchuan which has a Muslim majority, and after lunch we visited the Nanguan Mosque along with their display center showing the Kuwaiti Ambassador visiting in 1997.
