... has survived for 1600 years above ground/exposed to the elements when it was basically built of mud. You did however have to use your imagination for the "forest of stupas" which was little more than lumps on the ground. Still amazing to think that 6500 residents lived there in this desert location. It must have been a hard life (as I sit under the air conditioning). Tonight we have 3 overland trucks in the carpark, the ...

While we were outside, I heard a scream from Adam, which made me thought that he was dying. Turned out that he dropped his water bottle over the ledge.

After the Buddha Caves, we checked out ...

'Progress' on the Silk Road

A travel blog entry by shaunandkaren


... you call this progress?

As we checked out the old town of Kashgar, we got the feel of the Uighur culture still alive. Central Asian style bread, Uighur skull caps, muslims flocking to the Idkha Mosque for Friday prayer, and lots of lamb, laghman and plov for sale at the night food market. Stepping a few streets away from the old town, and we could instantly see the ‘Progress’ in action. The people looked more Han Chinese, the buildings were bigger and ...
