At the southwestern rim of the world’s second largest shifting desert, the Taklimakan desert, Stu witnessed how people living there prevent wind and fix sand by planting ecological forests. The county, covered 90 percent by sand, became suitable for growing dates and cotton. Check out the video for more achievements and special foods and drinks there.
