Breakfast at a tea house in Kashgar
Kashgar

These men's breakfast consists of solid black tea which they use to soften bits of a hard tasty bread that reminds of a bagel. While I was there, the conversation revolved around the price of sheep — or rather, the astronomical prices one could get for the most prized specimen. 

I lent my camera to the men and showed them how to take photos. This led to much hilarity as they each had a go taking a photo of me. The results were not bad at all:-)
