Mongolia

I recently got back from a trip to Mongolia and some of the photos are below. You can see the Gobi desert, which was amazing for its complete lack of roads, just dirt tracks everywhere. In also was far less sandy than I expected though it was of course a barren landscape. The ‘event’ photos are from the Nadaam festival held each July in Mongolia to find the best wrestler, horse and archer. One of the most amazing things about Mongolia is how unchanged it is for the nomads who live in the countryside, with many of their traditions going back to the time of Ghengis Khan.
