We drove across more desert on the way to Dunhuang. By the middle of the day we left Xinjiang Province, where we have spent all of our time so far in China. After driving across at least 100 miles of nothing, Dunhuang appears. No high rise apartments or big buildings here. It is amazing how much agriculture there is here. It is an old Silk Road oasis town. It seems that many of the Silk Road towns ate agricultural regions. That makes sense of they were supporting the camel trains.
There is a huge sand dune south of town, and some old caves to see tomorrow. I have no intention of taking a camel ride, though.
