8 June 2011
Moved out of the apartment in the morning.
We moved all our bags to the Anuujin storage room. I took a cab there with Emily, Laura, and Jesse.
We left for a retreat at around 9. I was in Ulzii Akh’s car with Kayla, Nathan, and Elisabeth. Bat taught me a…hand game? ha.
We stopped at the Chinggis statue again. This time we went inside. And watched a hilarious video about how it was built. Everyone (everyone) is “mad” that it is owned by a private citizen, that this guy is making money off of what should be a public national historical site. The video was so hilarious but I can’t remember why.
I don’t remember who took this picture for us^^^
I remember standing outside the entrance when we were about to leave and Nick and Elisabeth were having a heated discussion about what alcohol does to blood.
We got to the camp and it was so so so beautiful. We had a little pow wow under a tent. And then we set up a ger all by ourselves. We elected to not have any help (at first). We were told that the average Mongolian family could set one up in 45 minutes or less.
I don’t know what Jesse is doing or where he is going with that
favorite picture of me/Nick.
