When we arrived at the tent of the family we were visiting, we were greeted by the biggest smiles ever. I suppose they don't get too many visitors. I can honestly say they were the nicest people ever. Its hard to find bitter evil old people though. I think as a general rule, old people are nice when they make sense. Not only did they have tea and snacks prepared, they offered us shot after shot of vodka after they heard we were cold after the horse rides.
The horse rides themselves were okay. We didn't get to go very far, and the horses were walking most of the way (which was why we were cold). We tried to tell the horse guides we were with (which happen to be 2 kids) that we wanted to go faster, but they didn't let us.
Post horse ride and visit to the mongolian family, we headed back to the camp for yet another boring night. Yay!
