Jumping in Sain-shanda

Alagiin Sume, Mongolia

And back in the TransMonglian, this time, direction China !

The picture below was taken at one of the few Mongolian stops, in Sain-Shanda (aka Sainshand sometimes). Thing is that BlogABond doesn't seem to know that city, so I picked the closest I found, Alagiin Sume.

Anyway, in Sain-shanda, we stopped enough time to buy some water, as well as some lyophilized Korean spicy noodles (just add some boiling water, and that's ready). Quite good... when you're hungry !

Korea and Mongolia seem to get along quite well. We saw an impressive amount Korean shops in Ulaan Bator. Maybe it is because both countries are surrounded by huge and powerful countries that they feel it is easier to deal with countries of their size ? Just a thought though, i'm not an expert in koreo-mongol politics.
