Yesterday we left Washixiaxiang early and we continued traveling along the 315 highway to Kashgar. Along our ride we were coming across beautiful sand dunes and we took a moment to relax and enjoy the scenery.
Riding through the dunes is very peaceful and we are really enjoying our time in Xinjiang. We have been trying a variety of different foods and we just reached the city of Qiemo. We found a place that makes "Kabosaa." I tried many times to get this gentlemen creating this fantastic treat to smile for the photo, but he is a man a few words and I felt like I was invading his work space....I was just waiting for him to challenge me to a street fight.....
Yesterday we cycled 140 km and today we have cycled 60 km thus far. We were awakened by a beautiful sunrise in the morning and we are really enjoying the feel of Qiemo. We ran out of equipment and we will refill the trailer in Niya which is 315 km away. We have cycled over 4000 km and we are pushing with our hearts...Wish us luck, we still have some work to complete today!
