December 09, 2007

Motorcycle tour: An article that appeared Dec. 2 on a motorcycle tour of northwestern China said that the Uygurs are an Uzbek ethnic group. The Uygurs are of Turkic origin, not Uzbek. The town of Aksu was misspelled as Akso. The population of Aksu was mistakenly reported at 3 million; the area has just more than 2 million residents. The story also reported that the city Jiaohe is a few hundred years old. Its age is estimated to be 2,000 to 2,300 years.
