Mongolia has always been a dream destination.
It is a land of vast open spaces with nomads living in the same way they have for thousands of years. Having slept in a Gur (Mongol hut) for 2 nights it sure had a charm, but I don't think I would be so keen when it is -40 degrees in mide winter.
A simple way of life with a remarkable history.
Sadly the grandeur of the countryside was not matched by the capital, Ulaanbaatar, which is a dump full of the widest traffic I have experienced.
