Mongolian Natural History Museum

Not exactly the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, but they tried... The dinosaur colection is actually quite impresive, but it is an extra 5000 turgirks to take pictures in the palentology "wing".

Women's and Children's Day

Yesterday was Women's and Children's Day in Mongolia, a national holiday. In honour of this occasion the guys took-over in the kitchen so the girls could have a day off. Our camp manager cleaned the gers and Robin and I clean the toilets. We also a bags of goodies for everyone's kids and ice cream for all the ladies at lunch (a big treat in the south Gobi!).
