  • Hi!  I'm neighbor Gene!  One of my favorite places is China.  Here are some facts: "The Tibet-Qinghai Plateau is very dry and cold. In Summer the average temperature there is often only 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters are only 18 degrees."  It is a rocky place and covers the outer part of China. "The major rivers running through the Northwestern Plain are the Liao and theSungarie."

  • The Taklimakan Desert covers an area of about 15000 square miles and is considered one of the most dangerous deserts in the world.  The name means "once you go in, you will not come out."  Legends says that two armies and  cities are buried  feet beneath the sand dunes.
