Sheep’s Head Stew.

Sheep Lung.

Lamb Ribs.

Grilled sandwiches: choose your fillings.

Blackberry juice.

At the Kuqa Night market, other items are more prosaic: fresh fruit and vegetables, kebabs and candy.


For dinner, I ordered a wrap of deep-fried bread filled with grilled vegetables.  Spicy!

Later, slices of watermelon.  Sweet!

I returned the following night and chose the same menu.

How do you say “delicious” in Uyghur?
