Details just don’t matter

Afaq Khoja Mausoleum in Kashgar China

Take a close look at this picture.  Observe the hindu symbols and how the Arabic script and short phases do not flow from tile to tile.  They must not make any sense for those who can read them.  The how ironic is this wall of tiles? The site is a beautiful and mysterious place to see how the Chinese of the wild west used to live.  The sleepy camel and the colorful walls all make a great backdrop for souvenir pictures.
