In Love With Mongolia

One of my favourite quotes about Mongolia is by the author Steven J Bodio in his book Eagle Dreams. In just a few words he sums up how I feel about Mongolia …

‘Each time I return I see constant changes alongside the things that never change. I love its paradoxes. Its space and hospitality, its freedom and ancient customs. It’s a place of great roadless areas, all known and inhabited since prehistory. It is wild enough for great horned sheep, wolves, snow leopards and the last domesticated camels; with the lowest human population density on the earth. It is the home of Buddhist hunters and Muslims who toast their guests with vodka. I can’t get enough of it, and probably never will.’
