:: Xinjiang Day 3 - 五彩湾--布尔津

2007 Jul 24:
Through the 216 National Highway 国道, we headed to 布尔津 and our first destination was 五彩滩 but it was just another hot tourist spot. 
We did not even pay the entrance fee but rather asked Master Guo 郭师傅 to drive around.  We went through a great field of Sunflowers and some other beautiful spots. 
We had
dinner at the 布尔津河堤夜市. 
We lodged at 华鑫大酒店.  But of course, it was not a big hotel at all.

day3
good morning guys... it's Day 3.
this is the 蒙古包 we stayed at on Day 2.  the top can be removed so the sunlight can come in.
and this is to show you how sleepy they were.  well, it was very early.
and we were at the number 2 蒙古包.  weather was not very nice at that time.
and we were on the road again.
and that truck was "not" on the road.

usually we stop the car for smokes and rest, but this time it was different.  Kawawa looked so cool though.
here is the process of his "transformation".
as usual, he looked so cool.
guess why we stopped there in the highway?
hello 3eyes? why are we stopping here?
yes, because we had a flat tire.

but we preferred not to pay the entrance fee.  There were too many people.
beautiful sky again.
so we decided to deroute and went to somewhere else.  here it looks like a house, someone was cooking.
a suspended bridge, but it was being repaired.
sun was going down.

there we see Zola.  the wooden things there were taken apart from the suspended bridge and being placed there.
isn't it beautiful again?
hello 3eyes, don't do anything stupid.
oh 3eyes still there.
were they fixing the bridge?  or they were just kicking back?

the sun was coming down a little bit more.
you can see by how long our shadows were.
