On the road from Dalanzadgad to Khanbogd
Firsts, this week:
• Drinking camel milk
• Eating dried camel curds
• Drinking salted tea
• Hearing the horse-head fiddle accompany the Mongolian long song
• Driving across the Gobi desert, from Dalanzadgad to Khandbogd
Australians could be forgiven for thinking that the Gobi looks like a slightly less red version of the outback.
My intrepid driver, Tsevenbaatar, who has a rather eclectic taste in pop music. I should correct that: He was not my driver; I was his passenger.
