We stayed with them for two days before we left to go to the grasslands in Inner Mongolia.Wes tayed in something called a yurt (image on the right), which is a tiny house that's round with a cone-like roof. While we stayed there, we went horseback riding. That was a little scary because Tyler's horse bucked up and kicked my Mom's horse, but they were both fine. At lunch that day, we sat at a table with just the four of us. The waiters were serving food like crazy. They kept bringing more and more food out until the whole table was covered with all kinds of Chinese food. We thought it was funny. Most of the food was very strange to us, but some of it I really liked, like the soup, rice, noodles and the dumplings. I love dumplings.
There weren't many Westerners in Inner Mongolia, so everybody wanted to take pictures of us. A lot of people came up and touched our hair and lifted our chins so they could see our eyes better since I have green eyes and Tyler's are blue, which is rare in China. In a line to get on the chair lift to get back down, this man gave me a big whopping kiss on the cheek. Everyone was so happy to see us. When we were on the camels, all the other visitors were taking pictures of us.
And that was my trip to Inner Mongolia. Next time, I'll tell you even more about China.
