Yes! Travel arranged for the end of March:the ancient Silk Road from the West to China; 24 days
(Amsterdam-Istanbul-) Tasjkent(Uzbekistan)-Samarkand(train)-Tasjkent-Fergana valley(car)-Kokand-Osh-Kyzyl art pass- (China)Kashgar(train)-Turpan-Dunhuang(train)-Jiayugua-Lanzou (train)-Xiahe (Labrang Buddhist Monastry)-Xi'an(Terra Cotta Army)-train to Bejing (Chinese Wall, Tian'anmen square, Forbidden City)- (Istanbul-Amsterdam).

As most of it will be on public transport (4x train and bus), it will be quite an adventure. Planning to take my 'point it' book with me, instead of the language guides. Perhaps I'll add some photo's (of food) to the book.

Now on with the work I have to finish before I can go.
