People i met here, who contributed to and improved my trip: Juliana (Russia), Ed (England), Harry (England), Shuhei (Japan), Mr Lee (South Korea), Bayra (Mongolia)
We awoke with sore heads, after a rough nights sleep, due to the cold and potency of airag! First stop was Erdene Zuu, a monastery set just on the perimeter of Kharkhorin. After a quick look, we were back on the road and heading to Tsetserleg town, the centre of the Arkhangai Aimag.
The trip had been a short one in comparison to yeasterdays mammouth drive and we arrived around 14.30. We headed to a nearby restaurant, equiped with English Menu and books. Julia and i decided to stay as i showed her pictures of Yorkshire, whilst the others headed into the Mongolian restaurant next door.
When we returned to the ger I decided to relax, whilst the others took a hike up one of the nearby hills. All back in the ger, we tucked into some rice and mutton for dinner, an untimely reality check on the food situation! We decided to call it a night around 21.00 in anticipation of an earlyish start.
