the Nightmarket, smoky and exciting
and Mao is upon us... in the Foreground the Decoration of the 60th Anniversary of China

Oversize Trucks on undersized roads
wonderful Landscapes in the Desert
a really dry country...
there are very long distances in China
the roads are straightly going up into the Mountains
and the Mountains look beautiful!
colorful rivervalleys lead me up to the Pass
The View back
