Mongolia: The sights and the sounds
Written by Tyler Cole | 09 April 2011
After leaving Beijing, my next stop was Mongolia. This video covers some of the time I spent in the countryside, and shows a little bit of the everyday life of the nomadic families I visited. Early spring is when the animals are giving birth, so just a warning to those of you who melt when you see baby animals. There are a few clips of making buuz (Mongolian dumplings), lots of animals, a Buddhist monastery in Terelj National Park, nomad corralling horses, how they get the goat fur to make cashmere, and just random shots.
Again, don't expect too much...it's from a point and shoot camera.
