Mongolia – The Great Wall of China

The Gobi Desert, Mongolia

Do you know what Mongolia has in common with the Great Wall of China?
The Great Wall was built because of Mongolians; well, kind of.
The Great Wall was built to protect China from the various nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe, e.g., from Mongolia.

p.s. Today’s picture shows the Gobi Desert; it’s not the Great Wall of China.

  1. The parched and cracked sands in this photo look a little different to your first photo of the Gobi. I know from visiting the Sahara that there are different types of desert.
