"The Silk Road, singular, is a bit of a misnomer as it was actually a series of trade routes that spider-webbed across Asia. The best-known curved north-west out of Xi'an, China, and it was this route that was traced by our plane, above wide dusty expanses of empty space."

Nice set up for the story. And I had NO idea that the SR was multiple routes! Nice to know.
