Welcome to a day in the life of The Silk Road.

This site is designed to share my notes and photographs from travels to countries on the ancient Silk Road. I plan to visit nine countries along the northern route of The Silk Road and share a day in the life of each country in photographs, totally non-political. The new Chinese project called the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-century Maritime Silk Road, better known as the One Belt and One Road Initiative (OBOR) is the re-birth of the ancient Silk Road.

My tour of the ancient Silk Road will take about six years and will hopefully be completed in 2021.
