These Mongols from China's Inner Mongolia came here to pray to Monument to Chingis Khaan in Ulaanbaatar. It's shame that local Mongols use the Monument of the great Khaan as a background for their photos only. Instead they go to Buddhist monasteries and pray to portrait of Tibetan Dalai Lama, lamas, stupas, prayer wheels... Photo taken by Bolod.


A big camel is now being overwelmed by a little kid and the caravan is off!!!

All the camels in Mongolia are two-humped Bactrian animals . Riding camel is soft and sitting between two humps is comfortable.

"...That night we returned to the Tartars and the next day continued our journey. As I was tired, the slow, easy motion of the camel was welcome and restful to me. All the day I dozed off at intervals to sleep...". page 87, "Beasts, Men and Gods" by Ferdinand Ossendowski. \ New York, E.P. Dutton and Company. 1922.

The camel was thinking to take advantage over a little kid. But the boy turned to be much more clever than the old caravan "guy "by giving some shots with a wip. Photo taken by Bolod.

making fire

It's autumn and getting chilly. A boy from Belgium is happy by adding wood into the stove of a ger-sheep wool felt tent of nomadic Mongolian herder. It's true that the boy was also doing his studies while travelling in this country. Photo taken by Bolod.


On duty or a look. The boy is looking after a milk container while adults milking mares for airag-the traditional fermented drink of Mongols. The kid looks a bit sad. Why!? The camp is now fairly "deserted" because his older brothers and sisters have gone to village-the school year has started everywhere in Mongolia! It's September. The brothers and sisters will probably come back on weekend. I guess they are already missing younger brother who looks missing them here. Photo by Bolod.

fathers cooking

Is the father to cook now? No, he is just helping Mom to cook by starting the stove with wood. Mr. Adyakhuu has 5 sons, unfortunately, no a daughter yet, as his wife said. The boy in red is a son of his older sister who lives at the camp. One of 4-5 dogs of the family standing at the door of ger- a Mongolian felt tent , of course, knows  well of no-entry rule. Dogs are needed for protection of animals from volves during the nights. The family is planning to move tomorrow to a new camp which is fairly far from here. August 23rd, 2016. Photo taken by Bolod.
