Episode

Alfred's point of entry to China is Kashgar, in the Xinjiang region – the biggest in the country. It is home to the Uyghurs, an ethnic minority descended from Turkic peoples.

At the height of trading on the Silk Road, Kashgar was a major hub for caravans travelling to India or Central Asia. Alfred visits a market, is instructed in the importance of plant ingredients in preparing medicines by a Uyghur apothecary and is invited to a Tajik wedding in the valley of Tashkurgan.
