The Kuqa caves are an amazing collection of historical relics that were dug out hundreds of years ago. Honestly, I was a bit underwhelmed during my visit (there are better caves in Xinjiang IMHO) but I recognize the importance of this location from an archeological standpoint. Have you been here before?

Check out this interview I did with a gentleman named Michael Schubert. He and some friends went down to Indonesia, bought some islands and built a luxury resort that has been running for almost 15 years now.

To say that I'm jealous is a bit of an understatement! You've got to listen to this story:

My good friend Gary just posted this photo on Instagram last week. Anybody enjoy a good Uyghur samsa snack as much as I do? I lovingly refer to this as the "Uyghur hot pocket" :)

The view from my window while flying from Urumqi to Shanghai last week. Just the perfect amount of snow on the Tianshan, don't you think?

Are you the kind of person that loves to sit in the window seat just so you can look out at these kinds of views?

I am a HUGE fan of a Uyghur dish known as "ding ding", essentially a plate of chopped noodles stir fried with various vegetables. It's unbelievably delicious and usually not terribly spicy. Have you ever tried Ding Ding before? What did you think?

A beautiful shot of Kashgar's Shipton's Arch (known by locals as Toshuk Tagh). I always say that it's just so hard to get a grasp of how huge this natural arch is in the frame of a photograph. I REALLY want to go out here again with my drone, but it will have to wait for a while. For now, the best I can do is tell you that the Empire State Building can fit under this natural arch!

Old doors. What can I say? I know I'm not the only person who is a sucker for them. They have so much character and they seem to be these immortal keepers of culture. This particular door I found while walking around the Apak Khoja Mausoleum in Kashgar last month. There's nothing particularly special about it...but I still loved it. What do you think?
