Resting in Hotan and joining up with the main caravan. This is a map of the oasis that is our next stop after we leave Hotan. To the north is the Taxkorgan Desert, and to the south is the Karakorgan Range. As you can see, it is a big oasis, but this is a very big caravan.
"If you've got to resist, your chances of being hurt are less the more lethal your weapon. If that were my wife, would I want her to have a .38 Special in her hand? Yeah." - Dr. Arthur Kellermann, Health Magazine (March/April 1994) p 61
