    Urumqi.......... Incredible

    I had to google Urumqui to know where it was and learned something new today. Thanks for the post - I will have to revisit it as some of the pictures still didn't load but those that did - Wow! Very nice and lively place.

    Some of the results from my quick google search below:

    Urumqi is the capital of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China's most western province. The most "inland" city in the world - the furthest from any major body of water - Urumqi is 3,270 km. (2,050 miles) from Beijing (a five-hour flight). With a population of one million, the city lies as a green-blanketed oasis amidst Xinjiang's barren and uninhabited deserts, loess highlands, and the snowcapped peaks of the Heavenly Mountain.

    Urumqi means "A beautiful Pasture land " in ancient Mongolian used by the Junggar tribe.

    Located in a green oasis between the lofty ice-capped Bogda Peak, the vast Salt Lake in the east, the rolling pine-covered Southern hill and the alternating fields and sand dunes of Zunggar Basin in the northwest, Ürümqi has an average elevation of 800 meters. The largest city in the western half of China, Ürümqi has won a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the remotest city from any sea in the world at a distance of about 1,400 miles (2500 km) from the nearest coastline (Ürümqi being the city closest to the Eurasian Pole of Inaccessibility). The city has an area of 10,989 km².
