Day 35: Turpan - Urumqi

The team is getting bigger again: Andreas, my predecessor in Beijing, joined in Urumqi after flying in via Astana - welcome!

After transferring from Turpan we met at the hotel and spent a part of the afternoon at the local VW-dealer to get my car checked for the next 10.000 km - happy to hear that it fared well through the heavy use of the past weeks! And it looks all new and shiny now 🤩

In the evening we strolled a bit through the Uighur quarter of the town, returning now after a very tasty welcome dinner!
