Horses grazing in the Grasslands of Xinjiang
I didn’t expect there were camels in the grassland.
Woke up early in the morning and wandered into the grassland.
It rained the day before and there was no sunrise.
There were quite a few camels that have woken up and grazing on the grassland in Inner Mongolia.
Although, I didn’t expect so many of them.
They were not as tall as the ones I saw in Egypt or India.
They have double humps too.
I surmised that they were raised by people in the area and are not wild ones.
Also nearby were some horses.
Summer is short in Inner Mongolia.
The green green grass has quickly disappeared and the land become parched and sandy once again.
It was getting dark; appearing in the horizon are some horses and a scooter – which reminded me that I was actually in Inner Mongolia.
A place which I can imagine to be bleak and very cold in the Winter.
It was cold and we were up in the mountains of Yunnan, China.
Our trip brought us to the Napa Lake; but at this time of the year, the lake was totally dry so that you can walk on the lake bottom.
As the extent of the lake was immense, horses were available for renting out.
We walked the lake and felt the immensity of the place.
Walking back we noted these three girls, who looked after the horses, were in a dialogue.
Their costumes and colors have prompted me taking this picture.
Of course, I never knew what they were chatting about!
