View from the plane… 2
We crossed over from Kazhakastan to China. And out of nowhere came this humongous city. Closely noticing it, we saw some interesting features. The whole city looked like lego blocks. There was no sign of any old structure that you would expect in this part of the world. Everything was very symmetrical, in right angles and the houses looked like they were built out of cookie cutters. But it was a humongous city.
From Google Maps, it looks like the place is called Yining in Chinese and Gulja in Kazhak.
Check it out – specially see it in a satellite map. You will see that in the middle of mountains and deserts, suddenly there is a huge city…
