Dunhuang

IMG_8947

On our way to Dunhuang we went off the motorway for a while and came upon a mosque together with a Chinese pagoda with muslim symbols on the roof. The two cultures blending together!

The landscape changed and the arid landscape also was home to hundreds, even thousands of wind turbines. This area of China is known  for this.

Arriving in Dunhuang we checked into the hotel and then went to the singing sand dunes. The wind was still so they were quiet but it was fascinating and beautiful to walk up the dunes. Emptying sand out of our shoes several times and running/sliding down the dunes was our alternative to riding a camel. Fascinating scenery.IMG_8965IMG_8981IMG_8993IMG_8986IMG_8998IMG_9004IMG_9018IMG_9036IMG_9052
