January 2010 - Seeing the countryside
January started with a spectacular "Ball" on New Year's Night. We were amazed at the show-quality dancing that the Mongolians did. And they looked so beautiful in their elegant clothes!
Next we stopped in Erdnet. We visited the home of these two little girls.
Their mother was trying to get a fire started and the house was cold and full of smoke. The little girls hands were freezing, so I tried to warm them up by holding them and wrapping them in my coat. We came to see their baby who was born 2 months premature and weighted 2.8 Kilograms. We were glad that they were being allowed to keep the baby in a warmer building next door.
Here is a "ger district" in Erdnet. Notice the bright colors. Mongolians like bright colors.
