Uyghur girls play in the countryside near Kashgar, Xinjiang.
A Uyghur couple rides an electric scooter through Old Town, Kashgar. This part of Kashgar is being demolished and rebuilt like many “ancient” towns in China. It will soon be “jiade” like the Great Wall and so many other “new” old and ancient places. I was there last March and again in August and couldn’t believe what had happened in such a short period of time.

A Uyghur woman prays towards Mecca in her home. Uyghurs, as all Muslims, pray at least 5 times a day. Near Kasghar, 2012
