Snack break -
I didn't have a (good) map of the way from Urumqi to Kazakhstan so I chose to follow the highway. Makes sense you might think, it is for instance the most direct way and also quite easy to follow. Only catch is; you're not allowed to. And even though many cyclists tell me they do it all the time I had so far refrained from riding on the big highways because I hate being told off by the police.
On this picture it looks quiet but there are plenty vehicles on them, trust me. I do state that they may be safer then the national back-roads though because they are straight (forward) and have a wide road-shoulder.
