What I love about this sign is how it shows pheasants and grouse or

some kind of bird that I just don’t imagine really hangs out here on

the edge of the desert, but the proprietors were clearly going for a

farm and country feel. Indeed this is a lovely little guesthouse

(don’t get excited and think spa in the desert – I won’t go into the

sanitary details, but assume Chinese small town standard) with

orchards and gardens from which they make their food, and where guests

are welcome to pick grapes or apples for snacking. The Yurt in the

next shot is also theirs – something new this season, that they say

has been very popular for visitors.
