Silk Road

The Silk Road - Tibetan Sichuan, grazing yaks, nomads, sky burial, life changing Xiahe and communicating with an old Tibetan lady with no words, sneaking into Dunhuang afterhours and climbing the shifting sands, Crescent Lake, 18 hour bus rides, grapes in Turpan, the heat, forgetting my passport on the karakoram highway and hitching a ride from a kind trucker, Lake Karakul on a cloudy day, sleeping with rugs as walls, spotting Buddha in crumbling caves
