This is my friend Brian (Big Larr); he is my travel hero. He was just in Mongolia and now he is headed to China. Here he is in Mongolia with some new friends. He's got a silly, charming way about him that draws people to him wherever he may be.
He went from Ulaanbaatar to the sands of the Gobi Desert and back. They rode in a Russian minivan and slept in gers (pictured above I believe?). On the menu for the trip were camel meat, fermented mares milk, dried horse yogurt cubes, and Mongolian vodka. I'm sure a little vodka dims any reticence to try new things. *wink*
Boy these pics make me wanna go somewhere... *sigh* I need to get my travel on!!
