Well here we are again, back on the road! We have left Ulaanbaatar and are on our way to the Gobi Desert. We have not recruited any other people at the hostel so it is just the 3 of us. The price did not go down but we now are in a jeep instead of a Russian van and are happy for that! Our driver speaks a small amount of English and we are getting by much better with our sign language then with previous drivers. Everything he says seems to be drawn out and we all have a ...
"Ed come here, I've found your beard brother." Laurent introduces me to Fred, who I must admit has very impressive facial hair. Fred is one of a troop of long-haired Bactrian camels belonging to tonight's nomadic host family.

Got driven to pick up my last train ticket onto Beijing for next week and then met Marco, my companion for ...
Trip number two in Mongolia is to the Gobi Desert. So, what to say - it's a desert in the middle of nowhere. But actually it's not quite what you'd expect. This isn't Lawrence of Arabia (great film btw, but so long that Peter Jackson would have made in in ten parts). The Gobi is mostly scrubland with some small thorny bushes. To the south side is a range of mountains and between these two is a bit of sand. It's possible to cross the sandy part on foot in about a ...
