This morning I went for a walk to see the nearby Zaisan Monument that was built as a sign of friendship between the USSR and Mongolia. It took me less than 15 minutes to walk there.
Along the way I met this little boy pushing his brother and some kind of container.
He said in English, “hello, my name is ……. I said hello, and asked him how old he was. After a minute he held up 8 fingers. So cute.
Next time I go, I will have to count the stairs.
A beautiful piece of art with all the mosaic work in the mural.
Beautiful views of the city also.
You can see my apartment complex, and just a bluer sky than over the city.
On the way down I noticed this bird (eagle) for hire for a picture. He really was quite large with ropes attached to His feet. I will have to get someone to translate the sign. Perhaps next time.
There was also this gentleman selling his painted pictures and cards for a great deal. I only brought a small amount of money so I purchased the card for $1.00. The paintings were $3.00.
Many young people that passed by would offer a quiet hi/hello. Reminded me of rural China.
I think I could really get in good shape with this walk and climb on a regular basis.
