      Hostile receptionist

      The general manager of the Yambu 'Grand' Hotel may be a fine man, or so we've been told, but he's a poor people manager.

      On our first night there, we had no hot water for a shower and no internet connection. The hot water was fixed by noon the next day, when we were moved to another room anyway to find an internet connection. We had to move three more times, and then the staff gave up. So we took our laptop to John's Information Cafe, two streets away, where we enjoyed a perfect wifi connection, some drinks, and their excellent information on trips around Kashgar.

      For our trip to Hotan, though, we chose the travel services of Abdul Wahab, whose brother Abdullah runs an office in the lobby of the Yambu Hotel (we were well pleased with this tour).

      When we checked out after three nights at the Yambu Hotel, a very unfriendly receptionist claimed we had never complained about anything, even though one of her colleagues had spent hours with us looking for an internet connection and several housekeeping staff had worked on the hot water issue. We had also complained about the room key not working several times, and we had complained via Elong.net (who had called the hotel manager) about the internet connection. When we pointed this out, the receptionist changed tactics and decided to ignore the hot water and room key issues, while stating the internet problem was caused by our laptop. She did not take up our offer to go to John's to prove the laptop was fine, and shouted down her manager on the phone who was trying to soothe things. When we gave up trying to get a discount for our trouble, we were stopped from leaving by another staff member who thought we had taken a picture of the receptionist. He only let us go after 20 minutes when we signalled a police officer.

      All in all, a nasty experience at a pretty crappy hotel.

      ... it was much smaller, which became obvious as we passed Maos huge imposing statue so many times, it became a comical chorus on the bus of, "And here's Maos statue!" While the traffic was busy, we didn't feel we were taking our lives into our hands every time we crossed the street. Actually, we thought Abdul led us across four busy lanes, of passing traffic with ease, that we wouldn't have dared do in places like Xi'an. ...

      Later on in the afternoon, Jean, Marianne and I went on a walk through the obviously Muslim area of the city. The improvements being made there were phenomenal. Mosques were being built, buildings were being restored, rebuilt or being improved.

      ... time, which the whole country is on. The people here have their own unofficial time zone which is two hours earlier, and makes way more sense. This place is about 90% Uighur, who speak a Turkic language and are muslim. It definitely does not feel like China at all. But it is of course. Everyone learns Chinese at school, there is no call to prayer allowed and the the biggest statue of Mao is here. The people look different too, very central Asian, cool hats and sparkly scarves. It is ...

      ... via Karakol Lake with great view of Muztagh Ata, the landscape is wonderful. We spent two days in Kasghar to local visit. The Kashgar has been changed now became modern city with much population of original Chinese, big avenues, toll buildings and big shopping centers but still have to see some ancient things like Eidgha Mosque and old town. We came by the same route to Karimabad-Hunza then to Islamabad.

      There are daily flights from Islamabad ...

      ... down his arm - quite a wake up call! Next we walked around to the sheep and rams, who were also being off loaded from trucks before being tied up head to head in neat rows of at least 20. Moving on we saw donkeys, a huge lorry full of camels and some goats. After getting our bearings we escaped the dust and smells for a short break across the road before heading back only to find the entrance now jam packed; farmers were driving all sorts ...
