regiment 91

When I woke up, it took me a while until I was able to lift my feet off the bed.

I limped aimlessly around and ended up in the backyard of my hotel:

I figured that I was lucky to be here and not somewhere out where in the blowing winds.

Then I walked around the village for a while. Tuotuo is actually not just a regular village, but a working brigade. It’s called Regiment 91 九十一团, and it administers itself. Settlements like this one are scattered all over Xinjiang, they were originally made up of military units that were ordered to settle here.

I was going to spend a few days here.

And I was going to enjoy it.
