What is jijia plain?

Jijia Plain

Jijia Plain (Romanian: Câmpia Jijiei) is a geographic area in NE Romania (most of Botoşani, and parts of Iaşi counties). Despite the name, it is not a flatland, but a region dotted with hills, part of the Moldavian Plateau. In Romania sometimes it is also called the Moldavian Plain, however one should be warned that in Moldova the latter term is used as a synonym for the Bălţi steppe plus Middle Prut Valley, which have a relief and natural vegetation identical to that of the Jijia Plain.

Famous quotes containing the word plain:

    With wonderful art he grinds into paint for his picture all his moods and experiences, so that all his forces may be brought to the encounter. Apparently writing without a particular design or responsibility, setting down his soliloquies from time to time, taking advantage of all his humors, when at length the hour comes to declare himself, he puts down in plain English, without quotation marks, what he, Thomas Carlyle, is ready to defend in the face of the world.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
