It's not said that our beloved civilisation will stay for ever the unique model for the rest of the world.
According to update news China is re-developing the ancient Asian trade road known as The SILK ROAD.
Why is that so?
Oh it's simple to understand. Why should the most powerful to be in the next decade country (China) still be waiting that Werterners give them a bite of the world trade market?
They just as to look back at what brought them wealth and power in ancient times to understand the oldest trade way, aka the interior silk road or northern silk road compare to the southern one which go by sea (which means it was later developed with maritime roads) has been on successfully for centuries before boats and planes invention.
So the main idea for contemporary chinese folk is to re-structure and re-staure that road to create a communication trail between enclaved countries such as Kazhakstan, Turkmenistan, Tadjikistan, Kirghizistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, old Bactrian, and cities with imaginative names such as Almaty, Tashkent, Samarcande etc.

As I traveled many times to South Korea for my History of Luxe conferences, I took one day to go visiting the National Gallery in Seoul, and it's worth it.
It's so interesting to discover once again Western culture is not or was not the only one as we try to persuade ourself since a couple of centuries.
China is said to be invested nearly one trillion $ in this pharaonic project. Will it be worth ?
thanks media for the picture.
