Campsite

My fears of entering a restive region of China and being near the borders of Kazakhstan and Mongolia instantly vanished when I set sight on the amazing beauty of Urumqi.

Urumqi, China

Had the opportunity to visit Urumqi, the western frontier of China towards the end of last year as part of a work visit to the site of the magnesium and spring water mines that the bosses are acquiring. As an overseas Chinese that has never visited the motherland before, it was quite an eye opening experience for me. Never have I had so much mutton in my life and in a span of one week.
