The days in Kashgar, China on Sep, 2004.
Sep 1 to 3.
I spend 3 relaxing days in Kashgar. There are many items in the supermarket,
I could buy some item. I was supprised very much because one coner of
supermarket was for only spices, and ohter corner was for only tissue paper.
I never watch many items in the shops before I enterd in this turing.
In the every evening, Japanese turist and I went to Chinese food restrant
and ate good tast foods, drank beers. I ate and drank very much, so
my stomach was very bad... It were not relaxing days for my health....
(Another reason was Chinese foods used huge oil to cook them.)

Over 300,000 people lived in this city.

I could watch many motorcycles in China.
Right: The jiao-zi at lunch. Chinese jiao-zis are almost boiled or
steamed. But this restrant made the grilled one like a Japanese one.
After 3 holidays, I left here and went to Hotan in the South Takramakan
desert area. The carpet and stone for jewel are famous in Hotan.
