I’ll be traveling through Xinjiang these next few weeks — to Ürümqi, then by train to Kashgar, or at least what’s left of it before the old town is completely razed. From there, I hope to make it to Tushuk Tash, the world’s tallest natural arch — you can stick the Empire State building under it. With some luck, I’ll bring back 360-degree panoramas of all these places.
Considering that all of Xinjiang was completely without internet most of the past year (there were some troubles) I likely won’t be online all that often. Needless to say, if something happens to Google Earth in the meantime, you won’t read about it here. See you in a few weeks.
