Xinjiang province  -  Days 52 to 58

I spent 1 week in Kashgar, resting, enjoying 4 precious days with Hui Hui and getting ready for what is coming next: the Pami High Way with my friend Vince whom came from France to join during 2 weeks.

 

A knif maker in the old city of Kashgar.

 

The destruction of the old city, old houses are being smashed down, 40% of them will remain.

 

Somewhere else.

 

One of Idkah mosk's minaret in Central Kashgar.

A local dentist, I am glad I did my check up in France before the trip.

 

Hui Hui and I on our way to Karakul Lake: happy to be together again.

 

On our arrival at Karakul lake the weather isn't perfect but still the place is stunning.
