This section is my first impression of food in Kyrgyzstan, as well as the first time I know the post- Soviet Union building and lifestyle.這段路是我對吉爾吉斯的食物入門印象,還有第一次認識蘇聯時期的建築與生活環境。

Crossing 130km to Irkeshtam border 吉爾吉斯坦|穿越130公里到伊爾克什坦

at irkeshtam

We started to wait outside before the gate open, because we must be arrived before 11 O' Clock一早連大門都還沒開放我們就在外面等待,為的就是要趕在十一點之前到邊境

Before Irkeshtam border 中國|伊爾克什坦邊境之前

kashgar, wall, old

I didn't expect to get to Uchia so soon. It's just one more lonesome boring place. A hotel seemed to be under construction for a long time, Door-closed buildings, no people on the streets, empty, nothing. 沒想到這麼順利下午三點多就來到烏洽,這是個很荒涼無聊的地方,蓋一半的旅館、關著門的建築物、沒有人走在路上,空空如也

Karakol high way 中國|冷美的喀拉崑崙公路

Finally we decided to go ourselves. If we won't pass the checkpoint, we back to here. Though I can't go to Pakistan, let me physically close to it. So we left with few simple clothes. 所謂的導遊只是他開車到我們想去的地方,我們還是決定自己去,無法通過的話再回來吧,不能到巴基斯坦那就讓身體靠近它也好,就這樣我們只帶簡便的衣物岀發

"Where are you going?" we asked "Urumqi." he answered. "Oh my, could you please take us with you? Please!" I was so excited. Probably we don't need to hitchhike anymore. Just get to Xin Jiang with one car.「我要去烏魯木齊。」他回說,「什麼!天啊,拜託可以帶我們走嗎?」難道我們這麼好運,可以一車一路到新疆?

One night on the Great Wall中國|北京的一夜長城

long structure zigzaging through the green mountain landscapes, changcheng, "long town", thousands and thousands kilometres of ancient defense. For me the view of it was stunning. 躺在綠山上的鋸齒長條物,長城,長長的城,這個千年萬里的防護線,這景象讓我看得目瞪口呆
