Eating stalls inside the Sunday Livestock Market in Kashgar

Sunday Livestock Market remains unfazed by political skirmishes, religious clashes and regional social shifts. At this point, regional disruptions pass through town like dust storms through the Karakorum desert. Most deals and negotiations being made each Sunday, whether it be an addition to the flock or more horse power, usually involve the parties acting in a courteous and respectful fashion. The canteen is where these satisfied businessmen stop and enjoy kebab and chat after a long morning of wheeling and dealing.
