Camels and sand dunes, Dunhuang, China

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Chinese tourist enjoying themselves, I hope, on the back of a camel. Instead of that we decided to climb the massive sand dune in the back! Allot more fun if you ask me :o)

Japanese love an acient old China,such as "唐".

The culture(漢詩etc) remains in Japan.
