Camel Train, Xinjiang, China

Not everyone realizes that there are camels in deserts of the far western Chinese province of Xinjiang. This area has a large Muslim population, and it really doesn’t have much of a Chinese feel to it – the flavour is much more like the neighbouring ex-Russian republics.

I passed this camel train on my way from China down into Pakistan.
