We spent all of yesterday, 8 AM to 8 PM, in an excursion with the Foreign Language Faculty at National University of Mongolia to a Ger Camp about 2 hours outside of Ulaanbataar.
We were on a big bus belonging to the university. This excursion, which is planned once in the fall and once in the spring, is funded by the faculty themselves – I’m told the funds to rent the bus, the camp, and food, etc. is taken out of their paychecks in advance — so we were subsidized by these good people, we are so very grateful. Here is a photo of a ger. ere about 6 of them at the campsite, and another 10 concrete foundations on which gers can be put.
