Silk Road

Caravansary - This year we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services. Anyone may pose as 'merchant' here, and anyone may play a 'customer', but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this 'marketplace' will be one's interaction with a fellow human being.

And there was a southern sea route back, too. From Europe, through the Levant, Egypt, Arabia.. Then by sea around India, Java and back to China.

In the mid-6th century AD, two Christian monks, with the support of the Byzantine emperor Justinian I, carried out a successful smuggling of silkworm eggs into the Byzantine Empire, which led to the establishment of an indigenous Byzantine silk industry. The acquisition of silk worms from China allowed the Byzantines to have a monopoly of silk in Europe.

If Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were both on fire, what sort of sandwich would you make?
