Why Mongolia?

Why Mongolia?

I say… “Why not?”

Banished to “Outer Mongolia?” Yes. please.

I often heard this expression after announcing our choice to serve in the beautiful yet vast country that is Mongolia.

Many asked what drew us there in particular. After the choice to serve with Peace Corps was made we knew that serving in Asia was were our hearts were {ok well of course, where my heart was} and Mongolia was our number one choice.

Located smack in the middle of China and Russia. Both being previous “homes away from home” we knew that Mongolia could become that for us.

Follow me as I manage to share the beauty, uniqueness and everything in between.

And of course, who could resist that view?
