The Cradle of Red China

... with the crops and provide a colourful interlude by the road. There is corn, cabbages, onions, melons but no rice or wheat. Each little side valley is filled with crops. There are occasional glimpses of goats and sheep corralled on small ledges. Melons tumble down the sides of the terraces. We are heading for Lijiashan, a 550 year old village hugging a hillside set back from the Yellow River. There are 100's of cave ...

A travel blog entry by jamella
