During a pit stop in Sichuan, China, curious kids came bounding across the field to me. I was midway through a 10,000-kilometer motorbike ride to Pakistan near the border with Tibet.

Bactrian Camels, Lake Karakul
Photograph by William Goldman, My Shot
In summer 2007 I journeyed through Xinjiang Province, around the Old Silk Road, going especially to the old Uygur towns. After Kashgar, I went to Lake Karakul, near the borders of Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Afghanistan. I stayed in Kyrgyz yurts, walking 30 kilometers though the desert to reach two tiny Kyrgyz villages. The lake is surrounded by snowy peaks and is very high, toward 6,000 meters. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, though the people are poor.
