|Xinjiang, China, May 2009|
Uyghur Autonomous Region in the far west of China. We came from Pakistan by bus over the Khunjerab Pass
to this region. It is so different from other parts in China.
Linked to ABC Wednesday
todays letter is X. And linked to signs, signs
. Signs with Uyghur and Chinese letters. So 190 km to where?
Fascinating. Its a world completely unknown to me.
Love these photos.
As they say, you are spot on! Love that first picture.
I keep forgetting Chinese (and Mexican) locales for X! Good choice.

I love that first photo—great composition.
Absolutely Xcellent choices for X!!! What a fascinating trip...
Excellent photos! I hope you had a good road map!
what an exotic journey!
What an amazing adventure! Wow. Thanks for sharing your photos
Those three languages on the sign is interesting to see.
I wouldn't have expected Uyghur and Chinese to be so different.
The signage reminds of Toronto, Ontario where multiculturalism is alive and well.
These signs are like some fine artwork in the draft stage! How fascinating to see on the roadside! Like a total other world!
It is like no place I have ever seen before...very dusty looking and a bit bleak. Love that first shot. Impressive. genie
middle of nowhere, like hits:
Please learn to read the third major alphabet of the world, Perso-Arabic Alphabet. It says 190 Km to Urumqi, and the other place is Tuqson.
