The Mongolian Countryside

After an incredible and very busy week at the Children’s Hospital, Larry, Dana and I took off to the countryside of Mongolia with our guide Naagii and our driver Chukka (for the 7th year). With an  outstanding itinerary created by our long time tour advisor Doogii from Dream Mongolia, we set out to a village Naddam festival followed by a visit to Khustain to see the worlds only true wild horses, the Przewalski horses- breathtaking to think that only 30 years ago, they were thought to be extinct in the wild and we saw over 20 of them. Next was flying off to the best ger camp yet (Toilogt Double Lake) at Khovsgol Nur – the largest lake in Mongolia, surrounded by beautiful mountains.

The next 2 days were filled with boats on the lake, reindeer and their herders, horseback riding, hiking in the mountains, meat and more meat to eat, bonfires and… I am always amazed  at the wonderful Mongolian people and the interesting visitors we meet from around the world. All are so interested in our experiences at the Children’s Hospital. Tomorrow we head to Beijing and then home!

Until next year!!!

    So happy to see all of you doing so much good and having time to enjoy the country. Are you still angry about me not driving to San Juan. I went again this year for my birthday and spent most of the time lost trying to find hotel. Next time I will go to visit you.
