GRAPES AND MELONS
PICTURES OF THE NORTHERN SILK ROUTE DESERT. TURPAN (GRAPE TOWN) AND HAMI (MELON TOWN) TO DUN HUANG. Again there were fairly long stretches between hostels where I could scrub my laundry and myself. I mostly camped where there was some shelter from the wind, and I could get water, like at this gas station. This picture was taken the following morning (with the night manager), as I had arrived there after dark the previous evening.
