I finally had the time to go through some pictures from Mongolia. These are from the Semi-Gobi, “not-quite-desert-but-almost”.
Home to Dorio and his family, close to Khogno Khaan. This was their summer yurt spot, in the winters they moved their home to a more protected area. If I remember right it was only some 6 hours driving from Ulanbataar.
The daughter, Dolgor, with a friend.
Dorio, the father of the family.
Children of friends and relatives visiting the yurt.
Norjing, the granmother of the family.
Traditional Mongolian dress.
Play-wrestling with a friend. Wrestling and horseriding are both very appreciated sports in Mongolia.
Guests – there were so many I lost who was related and how.
Dorio spotting eagles.
This is actually not the yurt of Dorion (I seemed not to have pictures of it!), but one somewhat close by.
Solar power was a big thing, and motorcycles were popular for herding
Toilet with a view.
Pile of dung getting ready to use.
Orgiö, the olderst son of Dorio, was already riding without a saddle at this age.
Dinner – not something I ate though, we got vegetarian sushi.
Did not spend too much time inside, but this is the main yurt.
