Introduction

I wanted a record of our trip along the Silk Road; a record for me, but one that could be shared with others, friends and family who may be interested in where we went, and why we went.

The blog site is going to have two sections: the first is going to be the typical day-by-day diary of where we went, what we saw.  It will hopefully be updated frequently (depending on access to internet) and be full of extraordinary photographs.

The other section will be a bit more “navel gazing” on my behalf, thinking about the history of Silk Road, the different populations that worked along the route, their motivations, and their influences on the world today – all very grandiose!Image
