Well people, sorry for the lack of photos. The Great Firewall of China is blocking access to flickr.com, the site that I use to organize, resize, and store my photos online. Does anyone know of a way of getting around this?

Urumqi is dry dry dry. Already have in my possesion my Kazakhstan visa, and I go to pick my Kyrgyz visa up on Monday avo. After that it’s over the Tianshan mountain range to take some photos of a friend’s dad’s hometown. There is a big fat 4500m pass in the way though, so it may take a week or so to get there.

Try this website, it'll direct your request through proxies… It should work, I think;)
