Boys at play

Photographed in Tashkorgan

Xinjiang Province, Western China

on black at my site


Tashkorgan is one of the towns along the Karakoram Highway in Northwestern China. It's the last town before the Pakistan border. There's not much to see there, but based on bus schedules, we were inadvertently forced to spend the night, which meant that we had a lot of time to just walk around and see how the mostly-Tajik people lived. It ended up being one of my favorite days in China. I managed to catch these two boys playing next to a huge puddle in one of the small town streets.
