The Silk Road – book cover
In the summer of 1991 Tsur Shezaf went to cross Asia from Istanbul to Beijing on the silk Roads. It was a strange time – the Soviet empire was gone and nothing else emerged yet.
He was probably the first westerner to cross central Asia un attended by KGB after 70 years of Communism.
