No Comments: Kids photos in Xinjiang Uyghur (China), Silk Road…

Mimo’s blog 365, from the archive donotreply@wordpress.com shows pictures of kids ( among other kinds of pictures) in war-torn countries such as Cambodia and the Congo who exhibit the spirit of joy.  I decided to share them with you. You may check a previous post: https://adonis49.wordpress.com/2012/05/26/no-comments-gracious-kids-in-war-torn-countries-cambodia/

Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, spanning more than 1.6 square kilometeres in the north western part of China, borders Tibet, Russia, Mongolia, Kyrgystan, Tajikistan, Kasakhstan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. It is home to different ethnic groups  like Uyghur, Kazakh, Hui, Kyrgyz, Mongol, Tajik and the Han Chinese. Only about 4.3% of Xinjian is suitable for human habitation

Mimo wrote: “Traveling in Xinjiang was an unforgettable adventure. This month’s journey will start in Kashgar, go across the old silk road to the high mountain of Tashkurgan near the Pakistani border and then go back to end in Kashgar again.

The people I met on this trip were some of the brightest, most hospitable and unique tribes in this part of the world. The name Uyghur translates to ‘united’ or ‘people coming together’, as these wonderful people demonstrate in their great sense of community and age old traditions.

“No Comments”: Gracious kids in war-torn countries (Congo)

I loved many pictures of kids in war-torn countries such as Cambodia and the Congo who exhibit the spirit of joy and hope in Mimo’s blog: 365 from the archive donotreply@wordpress.com and decided to share them with you.

I selected pictures of kids:

1. From Cambodia, a country that experienced three years of internal genocide by the radical Marxist Khmer Rouge power, 2 million and countless injured and handicapped people

2. From the vast Congo that experienced over 20 years of civil wars and fighting against neighboring countries, and had to deal with million of refugees flocking for “safety” in the genocide perpetrated in Rwanda and Uganda…

The first set of pictures are kids from the Congo, in refugee camps.
