Hi, Im Mia and I am visiting China. Here I am at the Tibet-Qinghai Plateau. It is called the "Roof of the World" because it is 13,500 feet high. It's so high up in the air that is snows all year and the air is thin and dry.
Its SOOO cold here!!!
I'm now in the Taklimakan Desert which is one of the Northwestern deserts. This place is about 105,000 square miles and is considered one of the most dangerous places in the world. Legend says that there are 2 armies and 300 cities are buried beneath the desert. It is also to dry o have much vegetation.
I'm in the other Northwestern Desert, the Gobi Desert. Stretching over 500,000 square miles, it is one of the worlds largest deserts. It barley has any sand dunes and most of the desert is stony. There is barley any vegetation.
This is the Northeastern Plain. Here there is alot of good grass which fed horses, sheep, and other animals raised by herders. There are to rivers that run through the Northeastern Plain, Liao and the Sungari. The Summers were short and warm but most of the time the air was cold and dry, making it unsuitable to grow crops.
Im in the North China Plain which is sometimes called the "Land of the Yellow Earth" because the ground is covered in yellow limestone silt. The river that runs through the plain is called the Yellow River(Huang He) because the yellow silt got in it.
Now i'm in the Chang Jiang Basins which are areas of low, wet coastal plains. People used this river to transport goods. The land around it is very fertile and it doesn't flood very much, making it safer than the other rivers. Lastly, this place is very good for growing rice.
