I suspect we will find ourselves saying ‘Well, we are in Mongolia’ quite a bit during our time here.
Like the time I put the call out to neighbours to see if they had a hacksaw we could borrow… so we could carve up the whole lamb we’d purchased for about $60 that was now on our kitchen table.
Gory photos aside, I kind of like that a little Mongolian farmer just down the road delivered it to our apartment. Well actually Julie Veloo delivered it – boy, is she one cool woman… I so badly want to be her when I grow up – go check her blog out) … anyway, who knew that sheep weren’t born with styrofoam trays and wrapped in cling wrap?
And I also think it’s hilarious that “no freezer space? no problem!” Simply put it in an esky and stick it on the balcony! IT IS AFTER ALL MINUS 25 OUTSIDE!
