... travellers on the platform, adding a little to our growing level of concern.

Panic set in, when, just as we'd almost reached the end of the train, we saw our 2 carriages and engine take off – without us!! We ran after it, waving to the guard at the back, calling out for him to stop it. He waved back, but didn't stop the train. We were in shock.

... it was actually quite tasty. Either that or we were just starving.

All in all, the first night in a ger was fun. Listening to the sound of wild horses running past the camp, the sheep, goats and cows milling around the fields outside, and looking up at the clear sky which held 1000's of shining stars above us is something that you don't experience very often.

I had been asked earlier if I wanted to see a Mongolian doctor, or an "expert" doctor.
