Travel is a medicine

Hello Saturday!!!

Now I am very happy because I just submitted my resignation to my boss and will work in a totally different field from my background (Environmental Engineering). Though a bit anxiety and panic. But I would love to challenge myself at the age of 32.

Today, I am going to share some old photos that took two years ago, when I traveled in Dunhuang. Dunhuang is a city in China’s northwestern Gansu Province, on the edge of the Gobi Desert. The Gobi Desert is a vast, arid region in northern China and southern Mongolia.

Mogao Caves (Chinese: 莫高窟), once a frontier garrison on the Silk Road. The Mogao Caves (Chinese: 莫高窟), also known as the Thousand Buddha Grottoes or Caves of the Thousand Buddhas form a system of 492 temples 25 km (16 mi) southeast of the center of Dunhuang, an oasis strategically located at a religious and cultural crossroads on the Silk Road, in Gansu province, China.

The paining is still there even the wood is fading.

Its one of the UNESCO World Heritage (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/440)

The Han Great Wall. The Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD) was an important era in the development of Chinese history. It started after the unification of China in the short and harsh Qin Dynasty. (https://www.chinahighlights.com/greatwall/history/han-dynasty-wall.htm).
