Tea house and evening market, Kashgar
Kashgar

In the evening, the wide street in front of this distinctive old tea house starts to fill with merchants selling fruit. Kashgar's most distinctive architectural feature — old trading houses with terraced balconies and wooden arches — is endangered, with only about a dozen such buildings left, all of them unrenovated and looking very much the worse for wear.
