Previous Day JULY 8, 2001 Next Day
We drove all day in our Russian-made minibus. Mongolians may have the best dispositions in the world - they need laid back attitudes to deal with the horrible roads. The Mongolian road system could be the world's worst. No wonder most people use horses here. Any trip lasting more than a few hours is sure to scramble your brains, bump and bruise your body, and test your mechanic skills when the inevitable breakdown occurs.
This roadside Mongolian restaurant displayed a hunk of meat by hanging it on a truck's side view mirror near the entrance - we guessed this was the daily special. Can we see the vegetarian menu please?
Thus, we prefer our campsite meals over eating out.
