The Police control traffic flow at peak times. This guy (tiny dot in a florescent jacket) is one of the lucky ones as he has a stand. Normally they just wonder around with the traffic. The majority of drivers take no notice whatsoever.
Sam & Odnoo. This was on our way back from registering with Immigration. The office is situated just outside of Ulaanbaatar. The white arch in the background, on the left is the city gate.
One regularly sees piles of old snow heaped up. It is very dirty and I hate to think how wet it is going to be when it melts.
Below are the bed covers we have. Not great at -20. Could be worse, our teacher Odnoo lives in a Ger and after an hour & a half bus ride home she has to light the fire for warmth. She has an outside toilet and a shared shower. Imagine trying to camp in -40 & hold down a full time office job?
