Xinjiang, there is such a phrase: less than a complete loss of Xinjiang, China's size, less than in southern Xinjiang, Xinjiang will not really know, less than Kashi in southern Xinjiang strange do not know. Gobi, desert, and the loss of cultural relics
Turpan wine made me enjoy the whole trip in one the longest night, though in a dream is still kept long and difficult journey, made me strength has been to maximize recovery.
Kashgar, Urumqi ---- There is a good road linking the Tianshan Mountains Pamir Mountains ---- ---- Taklimakan Desert hinterland of the largest cities in Asia under the Kashi, length of 1747 kilometers. This mystery, conservative, fanatical Islamic world, as a strong magnetic field, pulled me to her heart. Left the yellow and gray shadow of industrial pollution in Urumqi, then a boundless side hills, vast Gobi, vast expanses of barren land is desperate to show in front of buses into the rugged land without any signs of life in Among the long gravel wasteland. 1 of dry riverbed is still showing the raging when they had the brilliant ancient Silk Road, the pain and difficulty and danger, opened the business travel ancient Chinese road leading to the Western Regions, for several thousand years along this road, China's silk, lacquerware, bronze inflow in Central Asia, West Asia, the Mediterranean, rattled, crisp monotone Tuoling Sheng accompanied by ancient Chinese and foreign economic and cultural exchanges, have to show the world China's strength. A depletion of wild grass clumps, camel thorn in the sandstorm and strong sunshine, and the howling Oscillatoria sobbing helplessly nodding, as if the old bus in the description of the ------ of heaven and earth to break the desolation and silence, the volume played a yellow gravel of the queue, not far from the re-emergence of the destruction of life, salt marshes, into the cracks Zhuang covered with thick, shining white of one, looks very like the waves Linlin, like a vast ocean This is similar terrible killed the last hope for many risk-takers. Boring, monotonous scenery is sometimes little oasis along the dotted area, then the green, glamorous, as many hearts jade unattended in boundless earth, water gurgling of the trench is the source of her life. Star Bucket shift, earth-shaking, time is changing everything, its vigor, well-developed civilization has been buried her become a desert sandstorm. Silk Road from the north will enter the southern Xinjiang Aksu, Trail Inn is especially rich in historical monuments, dry desert and the cool dry climate and its perfectly preserved cultural relics remaining underground, from the end of last century to the beginning of this century, countries explorer, archaeological team frantically digging around the influx of the Silk Road in the highly civilized ancient city abandoned a large number of artifacts, manuscripts, unknown language, are packed in crate in droves, exquisite frescoes are from the mountain caves of loess cut down , tons, tons, blatantly stolen exit. These artifacts are not the property of museums in China, while the thieves are justifiably argue Road: found objects, these countries do not have the ability to protect their heritage, can not afford to study them and not ability to impatient waiting to study these relics The international researchers to study them ------ the sky slowly being covered by a layer of gray cloud, strong winds blowing from the West, up very quickly, Suddenly became so strong that the body is extremely hard to pass through a Raising of the thick layers of dust, wind roaring, roared, with a gravel rolled up a huge yellow wind column Huzuohuyou in order to move forward with spiral-shaped, so violent, gruesome, Body shock the issue Zhigazhiga sound, windows were blowing the sand Zade bang creaked, sand covered the setting sun, at dusk the light gradually disappear, replaced by night. ----- - Fine in the desert has been blown into wavy.
Dawn of the donkey and the Avanti Hood
Mazar, Xiang Fei, mosques
Loud and clear but the donkey hoarse voice, accompanied by faint dawn light brought about the beginning of a new day in Kashi, everything is still hazy, and morning exercise seems to be limited to a small number of Han people, two donkey cart ride at full gallop In a wide street, each with a small whip of the Uygur Shouzhi small group the image of a courageous stand in the front. The donkey can be said that in southern Xinjiang is the world's most intelligent, riding the donkey's back and sometimes covered with a red blanket embroidered with exquisite patterns, and sometimes bare nothing can be comfortable in the bustling crowd in the shuttle, donkey's the same as the camel's nose under Muxie do not need to suffer, do not need to cage kits, donkey owner carrying only a small stick, which stand either side of the long ears became Zuozhuanyouzhuan steering wheel, but large Most donkeys are hobble around in a two-wheeled wooden cars were packed bags filled with cargo, or a leisurely sit Dangzhuo legs wearing a flower hat Uygur people, and countless stories of his humor is from Avanti Here transmitted to the mainland, has become a well-known figure, Avanti uncle still stubborn little donkey, hypertrophy of the gown is still, stupid have been driven out of Palestine in accordance with national borders, but it symbolizes the vast knowledge and respected thick long scarf which go? Instead, it is all in the head on top of colorful beautiful Uighur flower hat. Southern Xinjiang Uygur Chinese language would say that there were very few inquiries Road has become pieces of annoying things, until then realized I was in the minority. More than 600 years ago, Islam conquered Buddhism, and Islam and the Koran was introduced to China in Xinjiang and Buddhist temples into a minaret, crescent of Islam mosque, Kashgar Uygur people are Muslim and strictly followed all the ring of Islamic rules and teach the theory of Phi from the street wearing hoods covered the face of women will easily find this point, Uygur the status of women is a relatively late, and pray when the women are absolutely prohibited from entering the mosque. Id Kah Mosque is located in the west side of downtown Id Kah Square, an area of 25 acres, the largest Islamic temple in Xinjiang, was built in 1442, two more than 10 meters high tower stands in the door to the right, an enormous Koran text The plaque was hung in the doorway at the top of the tall, a few beggars Committee shrank shrink door lying lazily enjoy the sun on the stone steps into the compound like open-air garden, cypress pine trees, especially Ya-jing, the most ancient building is representative of the Islamic prayer hall, hall 160 green wooden pillars supporting a flat top, poles carved top with a blue and green pattern of exquisite decoration.

Blue, green glaze pottery decoration in the dome under the shower in the sun emits strange luster to a pillar on the corner to the Host in the golden crescent of high direct care to the blue sky. Ling Dian buried with him and his family members, 72 white orchid glazed tile-covered grave, deeply Emperor Qianlong's favorite exotic scent that the body can issue the concubine's tomb, located northeast of Xiang Fei was Apak - hoga's granddaughter, while the excavation has confirmed the Tomb of Qing Dynasty, Hebei, Xiang Fei Yue Fei's death buried in Tanglin Park, sleep within the tomb, the only remaining relics ---- attire stood Xiang Fei, legends, his brother with Xiang Fei a three and a half sister brought back from Beijing relics, and their descendants to commemorate her, and eventually called Xiangfei Mu. Hills around the palace built a mosque and Islamic school and so on.
Bazaar, women, pizza
Uygur old man and the British Jisha knife
Kashgar is the most famous bazaar, Chinese called country markets, some more than 2,000 years ago, there will be a bazaar of barter trade, continues to this day still not bad, still showing the seductive charm of the infinite. Everywhere in a wide variety of exquisite workmanship and unique flower hat placed neatly hung, you can easily see, touch lightly, casually try them on and then walk away so far that sales of the Uygur elderly long gray beard, kind of eyes often emerge in my mind. Bazaar merchants will not yell at the junction, which is not commensurate with their status, only those unemployed hawkers before doing so. Bazaar has been woven pattern changing, color, modern textiles impact on visitors, and occasionally found from Khotan, Yarkand, and Kashgar local embroidered fabrics and carpets but expensive, these typical of ancient Xinjiang, colorful fabrics, which Dyes does not contain chemical constituents, but from animals, roots, fruit shell, grape and other plants and animals derived, simple quality straight, there is a strong national flavor, the most famous is called Ana Er Gul's Pomegranate carpet is extremely rare rare find. Some wore red and yellow colors and patterns of staggered mast dress Uygur women, in which the shuttle purchase, they do not like the girl in the Mainland has the habit of waist, but by opening up its free development, because of their body appearance with a European features, a young man tall well-proportioned, beautiful lines, beautiful appearance, with age and become fat, obesity. Through the noisy, explode into a street of craftsmen, will enter the crowded bazaar of food, a pile of a pile of oil-Nang, and the knots Nang, Lei neatly together, it is the people living in the desert, an essential food, there are up to 6-10 months shelf life, desert road when you only need to put it in hot sand, it quickly becomes hard and soft face Nang, and emitting a seductive fragrance, when the Italian pizza pop in China, how many people will have thought pizza was the originator of this seemingly rough Xinjiang Nang, it also along the ancient Silk Road as another culture into the West.
China Mito English bazaar displayed a variety of Jisha assortment of English Jisha knives, knives produced in the United Kingdom Jisha a small town in southern Xinjiang, more than 170 km from Kashgar, a result of a sharp knife, the best quenching, sophisticated technology famous for, careful when purchasing steel quenching is very important, and this test knife experience is a Tibetan in Tibet, when the elderly to teach me. I have not found that truly meet the standards of good knives, just picked a knife blade engraved with Man Ying Ji Sha-dimensional characters, straight end of the shank into a thin crescent-shaped, decorated with bone, a very ethnic style of the waist knife, bargaining about closing time , it was found scabbard is not counted within the price, it is clear that this price has obviously deceptive, in my time to leave the leg lift, a big foot on my right foot back, for the southern border of the rumors in this Line has long been familiar with before, do not want to be really hit, and good in front of the face of more than a few sell knives Tar Zang area youth, chest facing the shining of the knife should be more moderate. I just smiled and out of his legs turned to another knife shop. Then one about 70 years old, hoary appearance, and looked friendly, clothing tattered Uygur old man appeared in front of me and pulled me out of the bazaar, I do not understand what he said to me, I just felt he was very good, a swords drawn from his waist old man gestures, bright and sharp knife-edge, British Jisha crooked words of Chinese characters in yellow bronze knife blade embedded in, he should sell me the knife, together with the odor of the scabbard with Khan He stretched out two fingers, like the name of victory signs, I did not counter-offer, I know he is not a beggar, his gaunt face is full of sincere smile, waving of hands, I quickly left, it is far away I run to him, and the two warm Nang into the hands of a pair of thick, I saw him wet the rim of the eye. Until now it has been accompanied by the English Jisha knife me go China.
