Jul 19, 2016 - Mongolia #1

We have had an amazing time exploring Mongolia. We flew 3 hours from Seoul to Ulaanbataar. Mongolia has a population of 3 million in an area stretching 2392 km west to east and 1259 km north to south, bordering China to the south and Russia to the north. 3 million people and the same number of horses! Mongolia gives you a sense of wide open space and vastness that photos can't capture. There is mostly steppe from the central region to the east, desert from the south to the west and forest-steppe in the northern regions. Only 3% of the...

Jul 8, 2015 - Ulaanbaator, Mongolia - A shift in time

Hi - Interesting flight in. The route led just west of the coast of North Korea, over Korea Bay, North past Beijing and Inner Mongolia. The sky was clear so I could see the expanse of Mongolia's deserts below. We were probably east of the Gobi. Still, the vast expanse of nothing was impressive. The change in countries from Korea to Mongolia is fairly significant, though the faces around me share a family resemblance, possibly due to a Mongol invasion of the Korean early in the 13th century. Lots of shifts that go along with a change from...

Jun 5, 2013 - Datong to Ulaanbaatar

Well, we made it to Mongolia without any hiccups. Of course there was nothing wrong with the tickets! We did have an anxious moment going through security but everything worked out fine. In China, they only let people with valid tickets into the station. At the first check point they ensure you have a valid ticket and current ID. When we got there, we were asked where are your tickets? I replied - I just gave them to you. There followed much mumbling and talking into two way radio. The queue behind us was diverted to another gate and we...

Jul 20, 2012 - July 18 - Back in UB

And here we are, back in Ulaanbaatar again. On Sunday night we went to a cultural show which was full of dancing, horse headed fiddle players, throat singing and contortionists - it was really good. The throat singing is very unusual, they use their larynx, stomach, throat and palate to make sounds and are able to sing two notes and melodies at the same time, one a low growl and the other a whistle. You have to hear it to really appreciate it. The contortionists were amazing - I've never seen people sit on their own heads before! After that...
