Border Crossing from Osh in Kyrgyzstan to Kashgar in Xinjiang

A sketch of a taxi driver in the car while we're waiting for other passengers coming out of the immigration building on the side of China.
At the check point of Irkestam pass, my passport was kidnapped by this taxi driver. He never asked me to want to get on his car but somehow I was already one of passengers in it.
But all Uyghur people are so nice, we had shared nice noodle, Lagman on the way. And he helped me to find guesthouse in Kashgar when we arrived in the city.
— in Kashgar, Xinjiang, China.
