After the Ryder Cup I set off for a week collecting down at St Andrews at the Dunhill links championship with the intention of collecting the odd celebrity autograph and one or two pieces of golf memorabilia. After meeting up with a few fellow collectors we headed out on to the golf course to try and obtain some signed photos and collectible memorabilia. After a couple of hours in the wind and cold it was decided to call it a day and with a few golf autographs in my autograph book and a signed poster (which unfortunately got damaged in the wind). Tuesday morning was no better weather wise however there were several opportunities to collect Ryder Cup memorabilia and the occasional golf autograph.

This proved to be difficult as the team was not due to arrive until the Wednesday Jarran Reed Seahawks Jersey , so we had to concentrate on cricket memorabilia and rugby autographs with the odd piece of movie memorabilia. Up to 5pm on Tuesday I had collected two signed movie posters, an autographed photo Germain Ifedi Seahawks Jersey , and several pieces of sports memorabilia. Wednesday would hopefully bring a few Ryder Cup autographs and a team signed photograph. It is really strange how sometimes you can go out collecting and end up with something completely different, on Wednesday I tried to get a Johan Cruyff autograph and football memorabilia but ended up with several items of autographed memorabilia(a signed golf flag Tedric Thompson Seahawks Jersey , signed golf balls, autographed photos and a large collection of celebrity autographs in my autograph album). But still not any Ryder Cup autographs.

Thursday was the start of the tournament and everybody who was due to play had arrived Amara Darboh Seahawks Jersey , I succeeded in getting a Rory McIlroy autograph and a Samuel Jackson autograph to add to my autograph collection also managed to get a couple of photographs with celebrities as well as a couple of signed autographs from the Ryder Cup team. I decided to go and watch some golf as it was such a nice day and afterwards waited at the clubhouse to try and get some film memorabilia I had with me signed by Andy Garcia, but unfortunately I had missed him and would have to try again tomorrow. It was quite amazing how quick the week had passed and I had only 2 days left in which to collect my missing pieces of collectable memorabilia.

Friday was the worst day for weather at St Andrews so I decided to get closer to home and went down to Kingsbarns to collect sport memorabilia and some football autographs Nazair Jones Seahawks Jersey , it was to wet to use photographs so I got a couple of signed football shirts and an autographed football jersey by Ruud Gullit. It was the first time I had ever had a Ruud Gullit autograph and it is going straight to the framer on Monday.

During the week I managed to collect quite a few new famous autographs, a selection of sport autographs including an Ian Botham autograph and a Bobby Charlton autograph which I would have to say is a beautiful signature and all in all it was a good week despite the weather not being too kind to the golfers nor the autograph collectors.

URUMQI, May 3, 2016 (Xinhua) -- Photo taken on April 28, 2016 shows the Xinjiang-Tibet Highway running along the Bangong Lake in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. As one of the world's highest motorable roads, Xinjiang-Tibet Highway, or China National Highway 219, connects Xinjiang and southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region with an average altitude of over 4,500 meters. Originally made of graval in 1950s, the 2,340-kilometer highway was fully paved with asphalt in 2013. (XinhuaJiang Wenyao)


 


URUMQI, May 6 (Xinhua) -- It is still chilly on the Tibetan Plateau, but with ""lixia"" falling on Thursday, the beginning of summer in the Chinese lunisolar calendar, the mouths of local herdsmen are watering.


 


It is the melon season in neighboring Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, fresh fruit is stacked up at the roadside, waiting to be ferried through the Kunlun Mountains and up to the plateau along the Xinjiang-Tibet Highway.


 


""Less than a decade ago, a kilogram of melon could sell for 60 yuan (about 10 U.S. dollars) on the plateau. Last year the price was just a little over 10 yuan,"" said Zhang Lei, head of an armed police transport detachment stationed in Ritu County along the highway.


 


National Highway 219 connects Xinjiang and Tibet at an average altitude of over 4,500 meters and is the world's highest road suitable for ordinary vehicles.


 


Originally covered by gravel in 1950s, the 2,340-kilometer highway was almost fully paved by 2013, slashing the travel time between Yecheng County in southern Xinjiang and Ngari Prefecture in Tibet from 15 days to just one day, with another day to reach Lhasa. Accidents and fatalities also decreased dramatically.


 


Transport police officer Luo Bing has worked on the highway for over 15 years. There were hardly any asphalted roads at all when he first came to Ritu and now the town has two wide streets filled with restaurants and shops.


 


About 700 kilometers down the highway from Ritu, Song Shibing, chief of a transport police troop, has seen dramatic changes in the lifestyles of local people. Back in 2003, he tried to buy an axe from a herdsman for 100 yuan (several times the price of an axe in a shop), but the herdsman refused his money and brandished an empty 5-liter bottle instead. He wanted diesel.


 


""Money meant almost nothing on the plateau as there was almost nothing for sale,"" Song said. ""Local people usually kept their money in a wooden box under the bed and sometimes dried their moldy old notes in the sun.""


 


Since the capacity of the road increased and it became much safer to drive, vegetables, fruit and necessities have arrive on the plateau almost every day. Many herders have taken their money from under their beds and deposited it in a bank.
