Mongolian villager with Chinese bicycle. ^
Mongolian villagers are intensely curious and this boy "Harmon" proudly displayed his bicycle the next morning. They always set up their Gers (tent homes) with the door facing South to maximize light and warmth into their abodes. This young boy confidently helped to erect our tent and later in the night his older friends tried to light a horse dung fire, to warm us on this particularly cold, drizzly night.Whereupon we would normally set up our Eureka tent with wind direction in mind, this did confuse them and made us a focus for light hearted laughter.
