    Is this the same structure as what we might call a “yurt”?

    • Yes, we are not sure why no one uses the word “yurt” here, but we’re thinking it might be a Russian rendering of “ger” (pronounced “gare” rhymes with “dare,” or sometimes “gear” rhymes with “here”). We have not heard a single Mongolian refer to them as a “yurt,” so it must be one of those words we think is Mongolian, but isn’t!
