Yesterday we arrived in Dunhuang. We had a couple of great days of riding, including yesterday when we completed our 140km distance in about four hours, thanks to a strong tailwind.
One of the nights we had a brutal wind storm at the aptly named Windmill Camp. Three people’s tents collapsed in the high winds. The next night, however, we camped next to a river. We all went swimming, bathed in the river, and went to sleep early once the mosquito swarms arrived.
Last night we relaxed here in Dunhuang, and visited the night market.
This morning we went to the Mogao Caves.
