Impressions from four months in Mongolia, starting at the beginning of April 2011. "Sonin yu baina?" is Mongolian for "What's new?".
I'm here to learn basic Mongolian but first and foremost to volunteer as an English teacher.

What has ice skating got to do with a bus without wheels?
In front of the Projects Abroad office there is this abandoned bus wreck without wheels. I have been very intrigued by this - what is it doing there, in the middle of the city, just next to the city swimming pool? I got the answer today: in the winter there is a small ice skating rink behind it and the bus is used to keep skates in and as a changing room. That's what I call recycling!
Some of you have asked about the orphanage we visited last Sunday. If you would like to know more, please take a look here: http://www.lotuschild.org
