    ... to be on the signs was now replaced by Uighur, the local language used by many in the area. The clear sky was also replaced by wind and sandstorms. Where the sand was blowing, the land was flat and some oil wells could be seen. Then it rained. After the weather cleared, there was a rainbow and an amazing sunset.

    ... but it is freshly made as we have seen during personal visits to the kitchens. If made hygenically, it is much healthier than Western fast food.

    * Turpan, tonight's destination is one the hottest places in China. It is faraway from the coast yet sits at sea level.

    ... Uighurs moved their capital to nearby Gaochang, and then destroyed by the Mongols in the 13th century. As we wander between the mud walls of the buildings we are accompanied by the song of a cuckoo drifting up from the river below - every patch of green in western China has it seems its resident cuckoo.

    ... All of the signs are in Mandarin, English and what looks like Arabic. I've been told it's not Arabic, but a form of Mandarin, but it looks and sounds like Arabic to me! Its perhaps the most difficult place I've found so far in China to be a tourist on the cheap, none of the attractions are actually in the city itself - and the public transport is not set up to cater for tourists.
