MARCO POLOs Journey to Beijing, Pagan and back

Here's Marco Polos (1254-1324) Journey to Beijing and the way back. I found a few cities he went through (these are named), the marks without a name (only numbers) are very close to his way. I wasn't able to locate some cities between Balkh and Kashgar (Talukan, Faisabad, Wakhan), and between Kashgar and Dunhuang (Jarkand, Khotan, Lop). If you find some more waypoints please add it/tell me. It's not perfect but I think very interesting...
