How was your business trip? Hope all is well!
Thanks for calling me when I was in Kashgar. Sorry I was in the midst of taking pictures of the Friday prayer at the Id Kah mosque when you called. I had a good trip in Xinjiang. Very beautiful province of China with breathtaking landscapes, especially the lakes. I must say that the stay in the yurt at Lake Karakule was quite an experience but definitely not recommended for tourist. There's no proper toilet and sanitation and sadly the surrounding areas around the lake are quite dirty - plastic bottles and rubbish strewn everywhere. The beautiful lake is marred by the dirty surroundings. I hope the tourism authority would do something about it to preserve the lake.
The Uighur people are very nice and friendly. Foodwise, I must say that there are limited choices - lamian, kebabs and pilaf rice.. Overall , it is still a paradise for photography enthusiasts like me. Would love to go back - perhaps to the Kanas and Yining. It's too cold in winter though.
Attached are some photos courtesy of me for China Highlights. I will send in batches due to the size of the files.
