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…………………..

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!!

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 :)

Local Horseman in Huge Thick Army Coat in Best Kanas Hotel at North Xinjiang

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 VictoriaAustralia – 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!!!

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 :)
