Route map, Silk Road Tour

"As you progress along the Silk Road the land shifts and faces change; cheekbones rise and fall and noses become more prominent; eyes change hue and hats change shape. Chinese yields to Indo-European, and Turkic mixes with Persian, as Central Asia bleeds into the Middle Ages ... Few journeys shimmer in the distance with such romance and expectation.

Luce Boulnois in The Silk Road
