S1E09-Sven Hedin-Through Asia Part 2
Another Passage to Adventure featuring the great Swede Sven Hedin. In this Part 2 of his travels through Asia, we’re picking up in Kashgar, right as Sven is gearing up for his trek through the Taklamakan Desert from Market to the Khotan Daria (river). We get a week into the ill-fated journey. Sven offers up some wonderful 1895 observations of the people and places he encounters. He sure didn’t travel light, that’s for sure.
