May 26 Zhaosu 昭蘇

Pushing our time, we drove along a line of beautiful landscape, moving to our lunch break - Zhaosu 昭蘇, famous for its sea of rapeseed flowers but due to colder spring this year, we are a few weeks too early to watch the full blossom. We stopped at the same restaurant as we did yesterday, only today we order a better Xinjiang noodle 新疆拌面.
Something to talk about is the Chinese toilet - watch the video clip, especially for ladies. For the level of modern China presented today, the restroom is the least developed area, it is not just primitive, in some area it is simply unbearable, even for me. Not just how dirty it looks, but also how awful it smells. This is definitely one of the area traveler has to pay attention to. Try to control your digest, and try to control your routine, take the advantage of usually better restrooms at the restaurant, although not always the case. Lucky to be a man in this environment.
Some images took along the way using Nikon D3X.And some Canon G10 shots made around the restaurant.After lunch, about to move on driving to our destination today, Kalajun Grassland 喀拉俊空中大草原, while Neo has to stop by a car repair to fix his antenna, I pointed a hair saloon to my wife, and such a great idea, she went on taking a quick shampoo, me too, and also Wanbing. A primitive hair saloon run by Kazakhs, but it is clean, and not to mention, quite inexpensive, 5 RMB for woman, 3 RMB for man. For traveling on car in Xinjiang, this is highly recommended. Quick snap shot using Canon G10, as well as the video clip.
