We are really enjoying our time in Xinjiang. I find the people have a tough exterior, but once you break that barrier they are really kind and loving. I didn't want to leave Qiemo because I am enjoying the culture and especially the food. We won over the man who was preparing the "Kabosas" by purchasing 30 of his excellent meat pies and he was all smiles which was a change from our first encounter....
Before we left we did a little shopping and we paid a visit to the candy man. We gave him a lot of business, but this morning I found Ho Young eating M&M's for breakfast....but not to worry mom, I have an eye like a hawk and I was quick to point out that he should be eating something more nutritious for breakfast.
There was one more thing I felt I needed before we left Qiemo and that was a hat to go with my styling jacket. I found this tailor who more his hat with such confidence, a man of great style and is quiet demeanor and his cool cat mentality attracted my business...He has a great family and I hope that I look as good as he does once I reach his age.
Once we were back on the road we cycled for another 75 km and rode for a total of 135 km. We decided to setup camp right on the sand which was a comfortable sleep. I am writing from a military town in which we stopped for lunch and we are not totally sure if we are suppose to be here...We have cycled 4319 km and everyday we are getting closer to our final destination. Pray for us that everything goes smooth..Here we go!
This morning we met this family who lived in a very isolated area. The boys were really happy to see us...
There are long stretches where we don't see anyone and we came across this gentlemen collecting bottles along the highway....

wow,wow,wow again. 30 meat pies, How can you eat all of them. Nice hat, it looks great on you. Seems the weather is pretty good in Xinjiang, Shanghai and my hometown just had typhoon.Some of my friends told me Shanghai is like a swimming pool now. Don't know it's true or not, hope Sino is okay.Oh,school put the military training off. Will you back Sino on 26th? Good luck...
