August 2015. After 12h stop in the border, being checked by 3 police officers, we were officially leaving the Popular Republic of China and entering Mongolia, land of the nomads. Land of the Gobi desert. Land of Gengis Khan!
We had read a lot about the one time biggest empire in the world and its nature, but we couldn’t imagine what was going to be in front of us – the vast greenery, the camels wandering freely, the colorful yurts, the incredible hospitality of the Mongolians, and the differences between its capital, Ulan Baator, and the rest of the country. The word was definitely going to be nomad.
