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.

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.
I’ll show much more of Gobi soon 🙂
I was really impressed by the diversity of the Gobi – wonderful place! 🙂
What a straordinary photo! Very, very interesting. I dream of taking a photo like yours. Compliments 🙂
