Market day

Keriya is an oasis and market village on the S315, between Qiemo and Hotan, on the edge of the Taklamakan Desert. It had rained heavily the night before and the weather was cool, and the market was muddy underfoot. These two gentlemen chatted with me (amazing how much communication can be achieved with good will, a couple of words, and hand signals), then were happy to allow me to photograph them. They were there to trade their goats.
