Dunhuang is supposed to be an oasis town in the middle of the desert.
Since I have been here it has been cold and drizzling solidly. The place has a very English feel to it...
In fact I don't like Dunhuang very much - it has more than its fair share of dishonest traders. And I am unduly sensitive about the price of bananas.
On the plus side, you can always pay a visit to the Dunhuang Luminous Cup Factory.
Or take a solar-powered trip someplace.
