Yeah, there are green nearby the desert, with scenic landscape. Just like entering to a different world.
Pine trees. Feel like rolling on the green grass.. But alas, there cow or sheep or horse dungs on the green.. :(
It would be fun spending a night here at the country side, inside the farm, together with the horses, sheep and the cows. The common toilets here are clean, but doorless :)
Might be even more syiok if staying inside the tent-like rooms.
The air here is nice to sniff. Can inhale and take deep breath here, unlike the sandy and unhealthy air in the desert.This is my horse. Err, I meant the horse that i gonna ride. This was my first time riding a horse leh. It's not that easy to climb onto a horse, unlike climbing onto a camel..
This is the horse owner, a nice man with wrinkles. I presume he is from the Kazak descendant? He only speaks minimal Chinese language. (I know Misti will notice his wrinkles) ;)
Balikun Grassland or Prairie with beautiful lush pastureland. Say hi to the sheep... and the cows... and the horses... They are all busy munching grass. And this somehow reminds to of Psalm 23 :)
The White Stone aka Baishitou/白石头 (a huge white quartz rock in the midst of the prairie) with a sad story behind it..
Sheep crossing the field in a group... Animals also know the principle "Unity is Strength". Don't play-play :P
Last but not least, a photo of the leng-leng yellow countryside flower :)
