The land ends in Moynaq.
Or rather, the earth ran out. Up to thirty years ago in Moynaq, in Central Asia, the land ended and the Aral Sea began.
Now that lake, so large that it is called the sea, has almost disappeared. Dried up at the behest of man. In its place the desert, the Aral desert.
A desert made of thorny bushes, sand
and salt, which on windy days raises a cloud of dust, a ghostly cloud.
