Today a few of us went to the orphanage to do some volunteer work.
Yesterday Mark and I climbed another mountain behind our apartment.
Since we have so much Chinese furniture we decided we should buy a few pieces of made in Mongolia furniture. Orange is the traditional color.
Lat night a few of Mark’s co-workers came over to teach Mark how to make some of our favorite dishes.
These 3 guys did a great job.
This cold windy morning Mark and I walked up the hill behind our apartment.
This afternoon we invited 14 of Mark’s Thai co-workers over for an American lunch.
Today was a beautiful sunny day, so Mark and I decided to ride into town for lunch.
Yesterday I was walking around downtown so I finally got to try out the new Cinnabon store. Delicious pecan cinnamon roll.
Last Tuesday a group of 8 of us boarded the train in Ulaanbaatar to check out the Russian border.
Now I can say I have been in Russia.
After lunch we took a drive to the countryside for a good view. It is close to a military base so we had to pay $3.00 and show our alien card for Mongolia to be able to climb the hill.
Here you can see the guard in his lookout spot.
