A man was out on a journey to the silk road, so he could trade his camel for a wagon.
I am out here in the Taklimakan Desert searching for the Eastern Silk Road. I tried to trade my camel for a wagon, but bandits stole my silk robe. This will be a long hard journey.
I have made it long and far, to Kashgar, and I'm almost out of food. It is blazing hot and my camel and I were almost buried in a sandstorm. Fortunately my camel was carrying extra silk, and I traded it for a horse.
We made it to the Pamir Mountains, and our camel has sadly passed away. I have been dizzy, but was able to obtain some spices that have made me feel better.
