Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

Hidden gems

Wednesday, January 03, 2007

Been so busy with the Aina Media Centre Project lately, that I don’t get much time to do any of my own work. But tonight I was rummaging through some old folders from last year in China and found a few images I couldn’t resist uploading.

All the images were taken in the Muslim Quarter; Erdaoqiao in Urumqi.

Urumqi is the last big city in Western China before you hit the borders of Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan.

Its a melting pot of diverse cultures from the Central Asian basin, a mad mix of Tajiks, Kazakhs, Han Chinese, Russians and Mongols to name a few.

With temperatures dropping to -20.c the city goes into hibernation mode in the daytime and comes alive at night. but more about the Urumqi nights in a future blog...........

One last word.

As we all do at this time of year, I've been considered what I want to do in 2007, my 'resolutions'. I came to the conclusion that, at this moment in time, I am doing exactly what I want to be doing! So my New Years resolution is easy!

And you are doing a *TRUE* job.
