Epic Day 1 in Mongolia - A post by Hillarie

It is going to be hard to beat this

The last four and a half months have been epic for us. New places, different food, foreign languages, different landscapes. But we have been saying all along that Mongolia was going to be the true height of our adventure. We imagined that it would be very different - like nothing else we had experienced thus far.

Well, let's just say that Day 1 in Mongolia did not disappoint! In less than 8 hours we visited the larger than life Chinggis Khaan (Genghis Kaan) with our friend Shijiree. Ran into a group of colourful herders attending a conference and wearing their Saturday best. We saw many ghers (yurts), got a sense of the old Soviet presence, and felt liberated by the open spaces. A fantastic day under the great blue sky.


Oh yeah .... Zach held a golden eagle and rode a camel.


I wonder what day 2 will bring?
