Summer Flashback

Here are pictures that were taken by my Mongolian language teachers.

Meeting my host family for the first time. Around my neck is a blue Khata, a Mongolian scarf that is presented during special occasions; births, holidays, graduations, ceremonial occasions, and the arrival and departure of guests.
Group picture after a volleyball competition with our host families.
Doing our best to learn Mongolian while ignoring the rumbles of hungry stomachs.
Holding our lovely Mongolian teacher in our classroom on our last day.  
On the day we left our soum, our host families met us at the border to wish us farewell and to take one last group picture.

Stay tuned for my next blog post:

My first day at my new school and all the victories and defeats I have suffered so far.
