500km cross desert highway

We were supposed to leave on our 18 hour bus ride across the desert this morning but unfortunately, Ian came down with a bad stomach bug. Not the greatest thing to have on a bus ride with no washrooms in the middle of a desert!

We've postponed our trip to tomorrow. Hopefully all is well and the weather holds out. We've also had a sandstorm blow through Hotan the last couple days. Apparently, a sandstorm can stop a bus on this highway for days. We've decided to skip the lake in northern Xinjiang and will be heading for Turpan from Urumqi. We will blog again then!
