Man with dead or dying sheep on motorbike, Nalati Grasslands, China
A man with a nearly-dead or recently-killed sheep (or two) strapped to the seat of his motorbike, pulled over at a rest stop near the markets along the road to the Nalati (or Narita) Grasslands in far Western China. Mutton is a staple of the traditional Uighur diet, and is served with fragrant rice.The ubiquitous security guard in this volatile region appears in the background to hurry us along our way.
