 Looking for some things you never knew about Xinjiang?

Try these:

Xinjiang is the largest province in China, making up 16% of China’s land mass.

Urumqi is known in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most inland city farthest from the sea in the world (nearest major body of water is 2,250 km away).

Xinjiang boasts the largest glacier in China, the Yinsugaiti Glacier in the Pamirs with a length of over 40km.

The longest inland river in China, the Tarim River, is located in Xinjiang (2,179 km).

Here you can find the only beaver natural reserve (Altay Region), swan natural reserve, and camel natural reserve in China.

Xinjiang’s Taklamakan Desert is the largest desert in China and the 15th largest non-polar desert in the world.

too much things i like,hard for me to list them all here..well,here is one special thing like.. reading some imspiring books... There r so many quotes and inspiration messages ,they just have some kind of magic power to cheer me up , pull me thrugh each day, however theses are the ones that has made me what i am today. .....No man or woman is worth your tears and the one thats worth them won't make you cry...... maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet them,we will surely appreciate them ..... i can't chooose how i feel, but i can choose what i do about it... i can't change my past, but i can improve my future ....dont waste time on someone who isnt willing to waste his on me.. And the one i like the best is-----Life is 10 percent what happened to me and 90 percent how i react to it!!!
