Darkhan

Things have been incredible since arriving in Darkhan. Are we seeing a recurring theme of incredible things? We were able to enjoy a wonderful presentation by our local Mongolian friends and colleagues, including traditional Mongolian music, singing, dancing and even theatrical performance. We were also given a traditional blue Mongolian cloth called a “hatuck” which is a symbol of well-wishes and good luck for safe travels. It is a beautiful gift, embroidered with Mongolian symbols, Buddhist symbols and wonderful designs. It definitely holds a special place in the short list of items I have with me here in Mongolia. That and the throat singing that I was able to listen to, which I must say made me feel like I was sitting in a Tibetan monastery. That was incredible.
