Together with 5 other Tour mates (as the other tired rest, together with our Chinese Tour Guide, have gone back on the Kanas (or Kanasi) Public Bus to the Exit/Entrance of Kanas Lake National Park, my brother-in-law Ah Hia & I got off here going on our Sightseeing of beautiful Kanas Bays…………………..
Like many other parts in Kanas Lake National Park where I’ve visited since Morning, it’s very peaceful & lovely out here by the beautiful Bay :
Arhhh seeing Camels make me really happy as I’ve been so in love with them ever since riding on one Handsome Camel up & down Mingsha Shan (or Echoing Sand Mountains) in Dunhuang Beside the Camels, there’s also a small little White Lamb on Hire for Photography too!!
Here’s another huge pretty Pine wood Church-design Toilet just by the roadside opposite the Kanas Public Bus Stop :
Hey our Bus’s coming…………hahahaaa once it stops at the Bus Stop, we’ve to run & push our way through many other Chinese Tourists to board the sosososooooo crowded Bus arrrhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!
Our next Stop – Moon Bay (so Named cos it’s Moon Shaped!! ) – pic taken from where I’m seated inside the Kanas Public Bus – good choice not to get off the Bus at any more Stops, but to travel straight back to the Exit/Entrance of the Park, so as not to be having a hard time getting into the Bus again later!! & especially when I’ve already got my comfortable seat in here
2nd Stop :
The Room has got a lovely Bathroom – unfortunately the water’s far too cold for any of us to be able to bathe – unless one doesnt mind getting sick – better not Risk it!!
Our Room (No 3617 to be exact!!) is at the corner on the 1st Story – & the BIGGEST among all our Tour mates’ - we’re so lucky
Is very fun riding on a Horse I remember very well my very 1st time on my Uni 1st yr Horse-riding Trip – especially when mine was a huge tall charming White Horse & riding through a forested hill in Victoria – Australia – one of my best favourite places on Earth
Brother-in-law Ah Hia soon takes off riding on his White with Grey hair Horse – whereas I wait for him outside the Hotel Villa snapping pics - while the other local Horsemen try very hard to convince me to go riding too – one even flatters me too much reciting Chinese Poems praising my great beauty, saying I’m more beautiful than the Mountains etc - Ohhh please!!! & that I look like a wealthy Japanese especially in my long wool Fur coat ahahahahaaa so funny!!!
This 16 years old young Horseman’s a very well-behaved good boy who’s helping out his fanily earn a living.
We chatted with the young Horseman for a while before it’s time to head to the Hotel’s Restaurant for dinner at 7pm walking a short distance from our Villa Block 36 where we’re staying for the night out here in beautiful Kanas :
Soon after we got our Dining Vouchers from our tour guide Xiao Chen……………..SURPRISE!!!!! as we step inside the Restaurant – there’s a WHITE Singapore Merlion – how wonderful!! Feel so proud that my home country’s well-known here in faraway Xinjiang - Silk Road of China
We soon settle down in the beautifully decorated with Xinjiang Cultural Atlas Silk Cloths Restaurant for our yummy Chinese Buffet Dinner spread :
According to brother-in-law Ah Hia, one should drink cool light Beer when having sore-throat – errrhhhhh which is what’s I’m having right now – slightly though thank god!! So to prevent myself from getting ill, I heed Ah Hia’s advise to drink some of the very cool refreshing chilled Wusu Beer – Very nice!!!
After which, we’ve so much laughters & fun posing for pics outside our Room wearing the long huge thick HEAVY Army Coat found hanging inside our Room’s wardrobe - Ummmm we’ve seen many Tuwa & Kazak locals wearing such Coat today in Kanas Lake National Park, so was the earlier young Horseman- BUT hey it’s sosososoo HEAVY my goodness we wonder how they handle them so well, wearing them so comfortably going about their daily work with such ease & grace!!
Though true indeed these Army Coats are really VERY warm – that must be why the locals like them cos they keep them real warm & cosy which they very much need in this very extremely cold chilly part of North Xinjiang along the Silk Road of China – & to think it’s not even Winter yet now, but only Autumn Sept!!
Hahahahahaaa what a GIANT I look huh?!?! Good nite everybody as I retire to my cosy comfy bed – & NOPE!!!!!! not with this Huge Coat on of course cos it’s far too heavy & too hot for me right here in this already warm heated Hotel
