    Some parts along the route are as barren as the surface of the moon, but some parts are breathtakingly beautiful, taking this long journey bullet train is like traveling between the heaven and hell.

    The guy in the last photo is a grandson of the famous Uighur uncle, 库尔班 ,who rode his donkey and traveled thousands of miles with the dream of meeting Chairman Mao in Beijing (He didn't finish the trip though and later was arranged to fly to Beijing to meet Mao) now his grandson, 亚森,travels on bullet trains.

    One of 库尔班's great grand daughters 如克亚木·麦提赛地 served on the first Chinese aircraft carrier, Liaoning.
