Hello, I am Elizabeth and I love to travel! Now I am in the Tibet-Qinghai Plateau which is surrounded by mountains. Two of China's major rivers begin here: the Huang He and Chang Jiang. How cool!!!
AH! In the Gobi Desert is too hot for animals like antelope and yaks, even plants to survive. The ground is stony too. Stay away Smee!
Now we are in the Taklimakan Desert. I heard Taklimakan means once you go in, you will not come out. I hope Smee and I do. Legend says two armies and 3 cities are buried 600 feet beneath us. Ugh, China isn't seeming to be the most pleasant.
I'm a little seasick after taking a small boat through the Liao in the Northwestern Plain but I have to tell you about its very contrast climate. While summers are warm, winters are dry and cold. It also has grass as its main vegetation. Uh my stomach!
Now we are enjoying the North China Plain which is also called the Land Of Yellow Earth because of the yellow-green ground which is covered in yellow limestone silt from the Gobi Desert. That is also how the Huang He or Yellow River got its name.
Yay! I can finally rest at the Chang Jiang Basins after my long day right next to the Chang Jiang River. The soil is very fertile so there is lots of vegetation here. China isn't really my place, maybe another time!
