Said Yili region fertile land, vast grasslands, enjoy "Beyond the Great South," in the world. Vehicles passing through guozigou, Horgos Port, Yining, narat grassland into Bayinbuluke - looking for Swan.
Did not come to this before, everyone had a smile advised me: or say nothing to go, and now the season can not see the swan. Swan early flight. Unless it is old and sick, or fat flying immobile. But I determined to go and see Harry Gan.
When the truck reached Bayinbuluke is more than four in the afternoon. But down days have been dark, ultra-low temperatures. Looking only at the end of the town see a street lined with small shops mostly closed and the lights dimly, the People's Bank have become rare, a kind of bleak sense of Moran.
News of the past, say, to the Swan Lake to be renting a jeep in the town. Passers to listen to play our "Santana" is access to Swan Lake? Most say that a low chassis, no. Met a teacher in a restaurant, he encouraged us: "we can go on what can not? I used to run. They do not know, or trying to cheat your car rental, right?"
Morning, RBI luggage check-out sail, "Santana" straight Swan Lake. Vehicles to enter the Bayinbuluke steppe region, "the green and wild boundless." Endless, Han greets suddenly deserted grassland. Anxious to supine Xiexia, looking at the point of being stagnant in the clouds, long immersed in the sea grass with deep breath: "the hearts of grassland." 22,000 square kilometers of grassland! China's second largest grassland. , Turned himself in this disappear.
Had more than 30 kilometers an hour's drive enough to "Swan Lake." We trace the car along the grasslands, gallops over an hour still do not see any way to the "Swan Lake" instructions. Asha reminded the summer master, whether lost its way? Followed the horses, we have finally found someone who lives in a yurt. Master off the summer with the Kazakh language to a Mongolian woman asking him about "Swan Lake" direction, and she locked his head and eyebrows. Then, the master stretched out his arms for the summer swan-like wings, she is still shaking his head. Extremely frustrating to make the old summer: "can not ah? Even the locals do not know 'Swan Lake'? Mongolian, she said, did not understand I said, I do not understand what she said. Hey!" I sang : "I saw a mountain, a block mountains and rivers, ah guy, that is, 'Swan Lake', ah guy, that is ... ..." Ashanti console me the name of wink, hint not to get downtown.
Summer turned around the old front, back open. Fortunately, in the meadow was surprised to find a small slope and a small sign on end, indicating the "Swan Lake" direction. I was very happy and singing.
In front of "Swan Lake" is not a broad array of lakes, but by nearly a hundred have been divided into the size of the reed swamps, lowland. By the end of September's "Swan Lake" Swan is really flying without a trace. Only few of us visitors, ran breathless, a rude disappointment. Xia master reluctantly said that he was only the first time to this. And told me that the best time to see Swan 5-6 early. Looking at vertical and horizontal S-shaped river, mind showing a swan fly only. "There are swans!" A local big shouts interrupted my thoughts.
She was referring to along the direction of the marshes faintly in the distance to see the two white spots at the water's edge pan. She decided that it was two swans. Before I would also like them, and everyone advised me to say. Also identified one of them is just the old swan, and the other is just fat swan. Yee a good horse costs, and Ashanti each riding a horse to go take a look.
The Hills take the dead horse, really riding for nearly an hour. In Pro Swan Napian swamp ago by a width of 70 meters away from the river water Chuanji opened. Ashanti would like to beat a retreat. Have looked on helplessly waiting for me in the swamp seemed a swan, I do not want to give up, the heart energetically in the acute fear swans flying, afraid of horses, never River. Rent a horse woman, like to read my heart. Riding across the river to test the depth of the initiative. Sway Britain the walk through the river dipped horse belly. River deep and black mud, Where not distinguish where the deep-shallow?
Setbacks is then a back, I must depart, swans, among others. Ashanti impressed by my determination, but also follow launched. The name for his dark Gas: Swan on the front. Laugh, my "ship" really fell into deep mud, almost sank. My pants, "Wow," is heard, all wet. Zhigu wearer caught loose the beast. Flustered Xia Xiang: "Ma It is also afraid of death, it will swim? Falling water, I have to pull in a pony tail not die." Horse woman straight across the river to my horse, "Shi Shi" roared, Ma finally out hoof to. Good insurance!
Takes out his camera facing the coke, quietly Fangqingjiaobu closer to the lake of swans. Exclaimed they simply look at the lens inside the swan, and completely forgetting forget the ground beneath their feet was actually swamp. "Oh," is heard, All of a sudden get into real trouble! The camera is almost to fly out, lying in the swamp! Alarmed the 10 meters was lingering outside the Swan. "Goose - geese," Liang Sheng, wings - fly by. "Jenna carbazole" manner even by a few.
Wang Ran, if lost ground stuck in the mud inside, watching the swans fly regret the ... ...
