Took a taxi to the airport for 42 CNY by the meter. I got there early since I thought the check in would be complicated and I didn't have anything printed out for them. I found out that I was in business class so I got to use the special line and the lady walked me to an security procedure and then escorted me to the gate entrance.
The flight was smooth and easy. I had an empty seat next to me and I had the bulkhead so there was plenty of leg room.
In Kashgar, I took a shared taxi to the hotel since it was already about 22:00 and I am always worried that they will give my room away if I am late. No problems with the hotel but the girl kept my passport overnight which made me nervous. I asked her to please be careful with it. If I lose it, I couldn't be anymore screwed.
