The winds out here are unpredictable as we continue traveling through the desert. We only came across a few life forms yesterday during our stretch from Ruoqiang to Washixiaxiang...We had a light day yesterday in which we only cycled 80 km and when we reached our destination we came across a great community!
There was a mini festival taking place in the village and we stopped by to visit with the people. Children were all over the place and we wish we had more equipment to handout. The food was fantastic and we ate some "Xinjiang Lamian." The village is predominantly Arabic and when they speak Chinese it is difficult for us to understand. Ho Young is slowly losing his powers to communicate the further west we proceed, but we are really enjoying this region because it is very unique from other places we have traveled.
Today we will continue traveling along the 315 highway. The next town is 200 km away and if the winds are acting up it could be a long battle. However, we have our supplies and we are ready to go! Zaijian...
This boy living quarters was positioned outside and we were happy to give him a ball.
Even after a few demonstrations the girl to the left thought the frisbee was a hat!
