Vaateostoksilla pääkaupungissa

Kuukauden tiiviin reissaamisen jälkeen puhki oli kuluneet niin sukat, pitkät kalsarit kuin farkutkin. Oli aika lähteä kaupoille etsimään uusia. Kiertelin kolme isoa ostoskeskusta ja lukemattomia pikkuputiikkeja enkä löytanyt mitään siinä hintaluokassa, jonka olin valmis maksamaan. Pelkkiä...

Mongolialainen roadtrip Tereljin kansallispuistoon

Vapaaehtoistyö perheen luona sisälsi nettisivujen kääntämistä englanniksi, isompien lasten englanninopetusta erilaisten pelien ja juttelemisen kautta, sekä pienempien lasten kaitsentaa. Kuusihenkinen perhe asui 1h+k asunnossa, joten meidät majoitettiin heidän sukulaistensa luona lahistollä,...

Herkuttelua mongolialaiseen tapaan

Kävelin kaupungilla kovassa pakkasessa ostamassa sitä sun tätä, koska huomenna jätetään mukava guesthouse ja suunnistetaan ulos Ulan Batorin keskustasta asumaan mongolialaisen perheen luokse. Löydettiin tämä vapaaehtoispaikka workaway -sivuston kautta, ja me asutaan perheessä ja opetetaan...

Nomadina nomadien maassa

Mongoliassa on monta päivää kulunut kuin siivillä. Heti maahan saavuttua huomattiin, että ihmiset hymyilee, on ystävällisiä meille ja puhuu englantia. Tämä yksinään oli aika shokki Venäjän kylmäkiskoisuuden jälkeen. Joka puolella näkyy kyrillisten kirjainten lisäksi tavanomaisia sanoja kuten...

Mongolia in a rather large meaty nutshell

Sainbanu! Hello everyone, I hope you're all well. I'm just thawing out in front of the computer, its -25C by day here atm so walking outside is inadvisable (and yeeeeees I know it got cold in Europe recently, but its gonna be -35C tonight so I have no sympathy). Since we last messaged you...

I think my eyeballs are freezing

Hi all! A Pre-warning before reading this... it may be long because I may get too over excited and tell you stupid details you don't need to know. I've fell a month behind writing my diary so this is our only records now apart from memories and of course I'm writing it and not Harri. Please...

Jumping in Sain-shanda

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...

Jumping around Karakorum

Karakorum was the former capital of Mongolia back in the 13th century. The Mongols being nomadic people, there is nothing really left from this capital now. The karakorum Buddhist temple used to be 600 buidings. Now only a few are left. Around the capital is a desert area, perfect for hose...

Jumping in Terelj National Park

After a day in Ulaanbaaatar, relaxing, walking around the (tiny) capital and most, importantly, eating like crazy, we were ready to start a 4 days tour around Mongolia. First stop is Terelj National Park, 2 hours from Ulaanbaaatar. It is a very quiet place with stunning landscapes. We...

The Final Frontier

I woke up before dawn and headed to the Capital Airport in Beijing for the final leg of my journey, leaving behind a lifetime worth of memory, single-serving friends (borrowed that one from 'Fight Club'), and promises of returning to the places I visited. The heavy rainstorm continuing from the...
