travel the silk road: all the food you’ll find along the route, both now and then

They say to save the best for last -- and I'll be the first to say that the food along the Silk Road was the best -- so here's the final post of the Silk Road series: FOOD!

travel the silk road: urumqi (xinjiang province)

And now we're on the last segment of our (pre-covid) trip...welcome to Urumqi, Xinjiang! Now, Xinjiang is the largest province in China, almost 1/6 of the entire country. Additionally, it's also the most ethnically and culturally diverse area in China. Out of all our stops along the Silk Road, we spent the most time here, yet could only explore a tiny, tiny portion of the province. Hopefully, I'll be able to visit again later!
