@gWhy donft you ride on a horse and run on a prairie?h

  I saw this catchphrase in a news paper in May and my husband and I joined a 5 day tour this summer.

 First , we went to gHuhehaoteh, the capital of inner Mongolia in China. After we stayed one night in a hotel

And we moved to the prairie by bus. We saw the beautiful sceneries on the 2 hour ride.

 We enjoyed horse riding and stayed in a Mongolian tent called gPaoh ,in Chinese.
