Mongolia - Misc

A few random pictures to end the trip...
 The first encounter is shocking, after a few days, we get used to it.
 Looks like Bagdad Coffee... it is how the water of the shower is heated.
 Mortorcycles are used a lot. However, for some tasks, the horses remain a must.
 This is a forest..

I was proposed bigger plants, but I prefer the smaller ones, as I like watching them grow.
The wind is a current actor here, watching the grass bushes dance is spectacular.
The window with no curtain is that of my kitchen. Even before the works started, I used to watch the garden when cooking. You can find me there even more now!

We were driving on a road when we spotted a black hump on the side.
I spare you the corpse of the cow or whatever animal it was...

Karakorum has been the capital of Mongolia.
It still has a walled "city", in fact the remains of monasters. If you have a good sight, you can see the white squared walls below.
Entering this space brings you into quite a different world, with a different architecture.

Outside the walls are the merchants of the temples, where you can have your picture taken
This city is guarded by 4 tortoises. As in discworld?

Renovation going on

It does not rain a lot here. I mean on most years, it rains for two days, then the sun is back.
How come that it does rain a lot this year?
Anyway, they manage to build and finish the front wall, and the door threshold.

You note that the ground is a mess, old and dirty. Landscaping begins on Monday. More fun to come...
