... get half way though! Kent and bill went up to the monastery that can be reached by climbing the 108 steps. We came back to the camp and played horse racing with ankle bones.

This morning our baby monk showed up at our ger while we were having breakfast so, although he hates to take pills (even when pulverized and mixed with a tiny bit of food), he had a second antihistamine which seems to be helping him quite a lot.
