Taklamakan Desert, China
It rained last night! In the desert! And there were mosquitoes! I thought they needed moisture to live!
Here's our set-up-
You have to admit they are trying. Here is irrigated melon in 100% sand-
This little fellow was under my tent. He's resting in a footprint. He's about 4 inches long-
More scenery, or not!
The Chinese attempt at making one think the desert has disappeared!
More road signs-
More evidence they cheer for the Riders here. Blue, green, to the Chinese they're the same!
There was some drilling happening, but not much-
After the water runs out.....
Where we found water-
John Deere lives here!
A clan going somewhere-
A very fancy shashlyk booth-
We're bushcamping in a quarry tonight! It was a long drive through the desert and there's more to come tomorrow!
