The Silk Road extends 7,000 to 10,000 km and it’s over 2,000 years old. It is probably the longest road in the world. It connected the great civilizations of China, India, Persia, Arabia and Europe. Camel Caravans were the main source of transportation to travel the long and arduous journey. The Silk Road is truly a very unique passage in the history of mankind, that has no equal. It has brought people of different regions, distant lands, countries and races together. It was like an international free highway with no borders. The “Caravan on the Silk Road” expresses a dream about a long and mysterious journey of two millenniums. It talks about stories of untold tales, challenges, hope, despair and the memories of those -caravans and people- who traverse the ancient road. It’s also a dream about a just, free, peaceful, harmonious, prosperous, happy and beautiful world without boundaries.
