Sa bano! (hello)I'm in mongolia! We got here yesterday morning after traveling 13 hours to Beijing then three more to Ulaanbaater (UB)the capital. We toured the city and saw a memorial, where I got to hold an eagle. So heavy and so cool! Today we split up and went to several churches. At the one I went to they had guitars and sang with their hands up. Though I didn't understand them, it was so cool to worship with them. They even had us come to the front and sang a blessing to us. So neat! We ate at a Chinese place that was good, we all shared 10 dishes. This afternoon we are going shopping and touring some more. We will be staying here at a hotel in the capital till Friday, then we will go out to camp in the country to teach English. Training begins tomorrow, and I can't wait to learn more about this country and people, though i am not ready to work hard. Well, I must go. Hope you are all doing well! Barista!
