In Mongolia, Mystery Trip on September 24, 2012 at 5:04 am

Not the most common tourist destination but a wonderful country nonetheless.  My favourite parts of it were hearing how the locals have adjusted to the influx of mining companies and the commerce they’ve brought with them.  The craziest change is definitely the traffic – endless construction, road closures, and a driving culture powered by pride and competition.  If you’re going anywhere by car, pack your patience.  You won’t be getting there fast.
