The Mouth of China

... this cave complex was lost when they dammed the Yellow River in the 1950's and created the Liujaixia Reservoir. To reach the caves there is a 30 minute motor boat ride along the reservoir. A walkway leads you along the cliff to a small but deep valley. The sculptures are carved into the sandstone and cover the period from the 4th c to the 14th c. Many of the carvings are in small niches. The large Buddha can been seem from a distance along the ...

... Moon was especially important to me because I WAS GOING TO RIDE A CAMEL ON THE GREAT GOBI DESERT! The ride would be for about an hour, not just a hop on and off after the photo op happened.

The name of my camel was 341, but {this if for you Chris A. and Art M.!) I called him Caleb! It wasn't Wednesday but we had a GREAT HUMP DAY nonetheless. We rode the Bactrian camel, that is a 2 humper. The saddles were not too bad, and ...

... off the artist). It was very reminiscent of what you would see in an Egyptian toomb!! Managed to duck down and come out with bith us and the tomb (for the verticcally challeneged) in tact. It would be a fabtastic place to store food as it had a constantly cool temperature!

Onthe way back to our hotel I got the driver (sorry cant spell his Chinese name) to stop in the middle of the raod so I could photograph one of the steel plants. I think he though ...
