Our gers for the day
Our last day in Mongolia was my favorite day. I went to Mongolia hoping to experience the nomadic life and was able to in the end. We started the day very early, so we could be on time to see how the cows and yaks are milked before they set off wandering the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park. Inside the ger we were able to try yak milk tea, yak cream, and yak curd!
We were also so lucky that the weather changed during the night. Still a bit cold, but we had a blue sky and sunshine!

I actually really liked it
Yak curd – this I liked less – so dry!!
My favorite photo from Mongolia – Koen on a yak!

After 4 days of milk tea it’s getting hard to pretend to like it
2 rocks for my Grandma’s rock collection!
And they made it a few months later to America!
While the soup was cooking we were given boiled beef and raw onions with no seasoning on anything as a snack to eat…
