    ... with examples of what the military training would have been like back in the day. Our final stop on the little tour was the western most point of the Great Wall. Although it is crumbling, it is neat to say that I have been to the very end of the Great Wall.

    ... rare earth elements are found, as well as gas and oil, which explains the both the enormous amount of visible investment and the graves far from home. Remote it may be, but we don't get an impression of backwardness or primitiveness.

    We stop for a photo opportunity at a Ming era beacon tower and are hit by the hot breeze coming off the sand. It is a relief to check in to the Dunhuang Electricity Hotel.

    ... a photograph but this is something you just have to experience.

    Another museum offers some shade and a great display of 3rd to 7th century cartoons and doodles from bricks found in the nearby Wei tombs. They depict everyday scenes of ploughing, herding, baking, looking after silkworms, and are so fresh and full of life that it is hard to believe they were sketched so long ago.
