The owner of this restaurant is a Muslim from Gansu province in China. He proudly
tells me he is making more money than he would be able to back at home, and that
he is the owner of the only generator in this small town, so after hours he can
turn his restaurant into a karaoke bar. Christmas tree lights and tinsel made in
China for export to the West end up here, providing a little glitz in this
otherwise desolate outpost.
