Scouting photos - Hulunbeir, Inner Mongolia, July 2010
In July 2010 Huijie and Yanjing headed up to the Hulunbeir Grasslands in the far north of Inner Mongolia, looking for good places to visit on a longer trip. As well as the grasslands, they visited towns on the border of China and Russia and experienced the interesting mix of Chinese and Russian culture.
