Though Russians proved to be generally a bit dour, we have met some nice ones along the way - like the family we stayed with who having shown us into our rather pleasant rooms, took us out for dinner, and thru Alexi, the son who spoke English, asked us if we would like to drive their Russian tank! Well, of course we jumped at the chance, and all had a go in the drivers seat, which was excellent fun. Rick wanted to fire the gun, but thankfully we managed to dissuade him.
Off for a walk to the shops now, partly to clear my head of the fog from thee inevitable Ulan Baator Irish bar, and also to get the supplies we will need for our travels in the Gobi desert. Mind you, I never expected to be setting off to the Gobi in a snow storm, but thats what its doing as I write this! It was 35 degrees when we arrived in Mongolia, so who knows what'll happen.
Anyway, having an excellent adventure, hope alls well in UK, and your not all working too hard, arf arf..... bye for now......Px.
