Photos from the Silk Road
I went to China in 2005 to do research for Silk and Song. Here are a few photos from that trip.
So, okay, that last photo, a story goes with it. We were out tarryhooting around in the middle of nowhere and voices were raised in request of a pit stop. So our driver pulled over to the edge of this huge dry riverbed, conveniently lined with boulders.
In mid, er, stream, a movement caught the corner of my eye. I looked up from trying not to pee on my shoes and, lo, around the bend of this dry riverbed appeared a herd of free-range camels.
Only in Asia.

I cannot _wait_ to read this book! (tho it’s weird having a February without Kate….)
Looking forward to this new series!! (though, I agree with Angela – missing a new Kate book this month!)
Kate thanks you both for your kind thoughts, and begs you not to forget her.
Great pictures, Dana! I love the picture of the tandoor – so that’s what it looks like. Can’t wait for my copy and all the sights and smells that will be relayed in it. What a trip! Anything for book research 😉
I miss Kate and Mutt, when are you bringing them back?
I’m really enjoying the Asia blog content and photos. I’ve never been able to travel outside the US and Canada, (yet – working on it), and it is fascinating to see the photos and hear your tales about your experiences. Love your books, love your blog. Thank you so much for doing both!
Entirely my pleasure, Fran, thank you!
