    ... Genghis Khan, whose trail of destruction I have been following for much of this trip. Although all that remains today are the ruins of the rammed-earth walls which once formed homes, warehouses, admin buildings, monasteries and Buddhist stupas, it was very atmospheric to wander through in the hot, still silence, under a sky which was ominously darkening.

Inside the grapes are hung on upright hat-like stands to dry. We had seen some of these buildings previously and made a variety of guesses as to what they were, including that of tombs.

    ... on the time of year.

    On this trip we are going to try to follow the “Northern Silk Road as much as possible. From Urumqi, where I am now, we will go to Almaty, Kazakhstan and work our way down through the “Stans” to Mashhad, Iran and then on to Tehran and on to Istanbul, Turkey. (I hope?)
