Grape is Pú Táo in Chinese. Pú means "crawling." Táo has the connotation of being intoxicated with joy. It is a good name for a fruit that provides so many moments of inspiration for all.
Turpan, along the Silk Road, is China's grape capital. Turpan is 154 meters below sea level but surrounded by snow-capped mountains. It is the hottest spot in China. The streets of Turpan are completely covered by grape canopies. I really enjoyed the warmth of the people there.
