Day 135: Walking Across Gobi

 

After meandering through villages the last few days, we are most definitely in the Gobi now. All the land to our north is flat. It is completely covered with dark stones except for the commonly dispersed tiny brown shrub. It looks lifeless, although I know there must be some living things out here we have yet to see signs of. I wonder if we ever will.

 

The day was filled with our usual philosophical debates. Todays topics were about what makes up a person's identity, and whether our trip is continuous or not. It was concluded that we disagree about identities and that there are no simple answers about whether our trip is continuous or not. These debates make the time pass quick as we walk, and the day was over earlier than I expected it to be.

Our mission is to walk from one symbolic end of the Silk Road to another weaving together stories of People, Places, and Purpose.

 

我们的使命是从丝绸之路的象征性的一端走到另一端,编织关于人物,地方和目的的故事。

 

Наша миссия - пройти от одного символического конца Шёлкового Пути до другого, переплетая истории различных Мест, Людей, и их Целей.
