A true story about my experience in the Kashgar region of China

Old Blondes

In 2011 I fulfilled my lifelong dream of going to China. It was a wonderful trip, fully escorted and arranged by the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. My impressions of the people were that they were warm and curious. The children loved getting into our pictures and taking pictures of us. In the Kashgar region closest to the Afghanistan/Kyrgyzstan/Tajikistan border they loved to stare at blonde females. We had just toured the Tomb of the Fragrant Concubine and were sitting around in the courtyard getting a lecture from our Moslem guide. It was a really interesting talk so we didn’t really notice our surroundings. We were sitting on bench seating in the courtyard; there were 22 tourists in our group and 2 tour guides. I was the youngest person in our tour and I was 59. We were so intent on the talk that it took a few minutes to notice our surroundings. Slowing and seemingly out of nowhere the courtyard had filled with Kashgari males with their little flat top caps covering their hair.
We were the curiosities!
A lot of these men had never seen so many blond women in their lives, I think that there were 9 blondes in the group… we were OLD…. But WE WERE BLOND!
We had definitely attracted a large following! It was harmless but a little unnerving, we were there to see the sights and they were there to see the BLONDES!
Our tour guide finished his lecture and proceeded onto the next stage of our tour and our entourage vanished.
