Just read through your blog a bit. Great information. It is so sad to see what is happening over there. I first arrived to MOngolia in 1992, the children's park was a peaceful place to roam with Elk walking though every now and then. I also remember the bird life to have been fantastic. Saw my first and only Houbara bustard in the wild in western Mongolia. Ah how the place has transformed.
