Sunset over the Gobi in southern Mongolia.
I rode through this desert on a train from the Chinese border.
Gherts surrounding the outskirts of
The city of Ulaanbaatar. Lots of A's in
this name. Good little town, decent places to eat, alright internet. It is a
good stop over on the Trans-Siberian Express from Moscow to Beijing.
The outskirts of Ulaanbaatar where I found
cheap lodging in a ghert hotel.
Mongolians going to the Buddhist monastery
in the northern section of Ulaanbaatar. There are many benches in the courtyard
and is a great place to watch the day pass.
A Buddhist stelae at a temple in Mongolia.
Around this stelae are prayer wheels that people spin while saying prayers.
Mongolian Buddhist Monastery.
This was a really neat place to visit and sit around drinking a bag of milk
while watching people in the courtyard.
