    Impromptu trip to Mongolia

    Campsite on the way East.
    Yup he really does live above that shipping container....and owns the yurt next it too...the low building is a kind of kitchen for guests.... I couldn't work out what the flashing neon '99' sign was for....so I asked, don't think he knew either!

    It's new angle on the tired old Route 66 signs that people put up.


    I'm really enjoying this ... hope there's many more to come.
    If you think about it, you're probably better off staying at home and looking at most places on Google Earth.

    I love the fact someone's crashed into it! There's a big scrape on the left hand side!

    By chance I'm actually staying in the former Ural factory. It also housed the Ural museum for a while.
    The owner was the sales manager for 15 years.
    Ural started in Moscow and moved here during the 'Great Patriotic War' in 1941

    Famous in my own dinnertime!

    I'm going to be on TV! My phone rang, would I like to do an interview tomorrow morning..." But we're struggling to find an interpreter"
    They ring back, they've found one...its Simon who teaches English at the local school and will happily bunk off for the morning 😀😀😀
    We bond straight away and he tells me about his short time in England and life in downtown Irbit.
    Annoying bilingual in French and English he could look at the camera, listen to me and spew out the local lingo without pausing for breath.... Makes me want to punch his lights out....!
    Not sure if I'm on the cutting room floor at the moment.......

    Enjoying this Glyn .... keep it coming

    We rode through Russia and Mongolia .... strewth, was it really twelve years ago

    The road south, from Ulaan Batar through the Gobi Desert to the Chinese Border was just tracks in the sand ... there was talk of making a tarmac road ...

    Great people, wonderfully welcoming

    Enjoy

    Tours, training or custom made earplugs ... it's all here.

    The roads to the Gobi are indeed quickly becoming sealed. The Chinese have mines there and need sealed roads for their trucks.....
