I slept pretty well in my tent last night although I woke once or twice because of the strong wind blowing outside that caused the tents to flap around a bit. Because of the winds, I put trousers on in the morning but when I actually went outside it wasn't that cold at all as the wind was quite warm.

Yet another excellent dinner is offered, at which we finish the melons and toast the birth of a grandchild to one of the party, with a local red wine from the Mogao Industrial Company.

Then it is off to a national park, the Singing Sand Mountains, so called because the sand supposedly ...

We go on another wall walk, this time in a landscape of browns. Here the construction is of compacted clay and straw, as these were the easily available materials. We climb steeply under a dome of shimmering sky and sun to the last watch-tower, looking out over a vast plain on one side: here we can see tanks on a military training area as well as a ...
