Mongolia


In Ulaan Baatar, we watched some throat singing, then left for a five
night trip into the Gobi Desert,

travelling largely off road, and sleeping in nomads' guest gers.

The host in the photo below yelled at her husband, because he lost their herd of ponies. Luckily, a neighbour 70 kilometres away called to say they were there.


We saw giant eagles, gerbils, wild flowers and a stuffed snow leopard.

The grasslands are sparsely populated with nomads and their herds of camels, ponies or goats.

We tried fermented mares' milk, cheese and ate lots of fatty goat.
