The Ger camp
After having breakfast at the usual 10am, we were again left to our own devices for a few hours to kill the time before venturing off to meet the family and go horse riding. Me and Tash go for a walk, whilst Amy and Jaz hang out in their tent. We walk nowhere in particular. But the fresh air is nice, and it was good to get away from the camp for a few hours.

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!

Yeah it was really like that actually. You walk over the snow capped hills and you see nobody. Not even any animals. Discovering new snow deserts with a few trusty sidekicks ;)

Wow, what an experience. Did you feel like Marco Polo a little, minus the guides?
