Moon Over Mongolia

IMG_2457

My husband and I just came back from an amazing trip to Mongolia. It reminded me of a last frontier. I haven’t been so jazzed by a trip in a long while. Its history alone will have me up reading long into the night. Medieval traditions slamming into the 21st century. If you have a chance, grab a warm jacket and go!

I loved the use of color on and in Mongolian houses.

Because of the condition of the roads, those on horseback were making better progress.

Ruminating on possible future stories. Do you have any Mongolian stories for me?

Thanks for looking at my holiday pics. x

    Love the pictures. I was going to say, set a new book there! Then I saw your last comment! Can’t believe how cold it looks for October.

    Hi Carol, you are so sweet to look at the photos again. Thank you. And yes, it was mighty cold. The better to snuggle up in! x

  3. Oh my goodness, Nina. What a trip! Wonderful photos. I want to go there now!

  4. And now, I’m yearning for the yurts! Lovely photos, Nina—it looks like a wonderful time!

    Thanks, Sarah. That yurt was very romantic!

  7. These photos make me want to take a trip to Mongolia. I suppose there is never a warm season of year, though, just one less cold than the other. I love how the clothing and buildings are so colorful!

    Hi, Suzanne, yes, that’s what I loved so much about Mongolia. Their amazing sense and love of color.
