The road is coming to close to the end, but we are fighting hard to make ground...I feel at times we are in a movie struggling across long stretches of desert trying to reach our destination and I often taunt mother nature questioning it's strength and wondering when we will come across a beautiful water cooler...Yesterday there was a earthquake in Hetian prefecture and we just finished cycling through that region today...Luckily we avoided that natural disturbance and we made it safely through to the Kashgar prefecture.
We made few stops yesterday to meet and greet the children....The first group we met were wild and a lot of fun. We showed a few tricks with the skipping rope, even had a few old men jump in on the action! Having fun exists at all ages and sometimes we need to revert back to those old sentiments to feel rejuvenated and refreshed. I often believe when people ask us " ni chong guo lai?" and we tell them Shanghai....they get inspired to maybe get moving, break a sweat or create a goal for themselves they want to achieve..People are attracted to passion and I am sure down the line we have made positive impression with a few individuals...
We are getting closer to our destination and we are currently in a town called Yarkant. Yesterday we stopped heading west and now we are moving north towards Kashgar which is 190 km away. Go to go back to that familiar seat and keep on moving. Much love coming from the haul 2 play camp...Jiayou!!!! We are almost there baby!
