Leaving UB in the morning

Published by at 12:26 pm under Mongolia,Ulaan Baatar

I’ve been back in Ulaan Baatar for a couple of days and it’s been great to get full nights’ sleep in a bed followed by long, hot showers. After some shopping and dining out with new friends, it’s now time for a quick side trip up to Lake Khovsgol and I leave for the airport in 6 hours. As usual for Mongolian airlines, schedules have changed and the flight I was supposed to be on returning on Wednesday was canceled so I’m returning to UB on a Tuesday flight. Since this cuts things short and leaves me with an extra day, I’m spending that day/night at a camp in Terelj National Park which is about 80km northeast of UB. This may be a blessing in disguise since it gives me more exposure to different regions and types of landscapes within UB. Once back from Terelj, I’ll have a day here in UB to run a few errands and then get ready for the long journey home. I won’t have Internet access while away. I hope to post more on the blog when I’m back about events from the trip and also some new photo galleries. Ciao…
