    ha! Now it is spring and coming into summer I really don't care for it at all. It will always be offered to you in the countryside, along with fermented milk, which could be horse,yak or camel. Horse and yak are fine, but camel is absolutely vile to my taste.

    It was 19 degrees yesterday and I went for a nice walk and beer in the park. Today is another matter:
    Curse you extreme continental climate!

    1 week and the school year is over; it has gone alarmingly fast! Looking forward to stick around for another year, or maybe more...

    Just got my first proper cold/cough of the year- the smoke was vile in winter but the cold bearable. Still want to explore adventurous places, so the next place of temporary residence would need to be more so than Mongolia

    It would appear that for a variety of reasons I am now the only new hire coming/wanted back. It's a good job I generally enjoy meeting new people, I guess...

    Kurdistan
    Niger
    Bhutan
    Azerbaijan
    Krgyzstan
    Moldova
    Russia (Siberia region)

    Not in any particular order of preference, will make more solid plans at the start of 2020. Bosnia Herzegovina is also on the list and pretty close to the top, just not many opportunities. Last time I was there was in 2004, so I am sure things have changed quite a bit.

    Head still pounding from the work party, sat next to my coworker who is ex Russian Army, unsurprisingly he likes vodka . Did get time to hike up a mountain, we only packed 18 year old Scotch, who needs water eh?

    This morning we also hiked out to "Turtle Rock"



    A good weekend combining binge drinking and going up mountains, two things I'm pretty keen on!

    Yep, living and working in countries lets you get to know the locals (if you bother your arse and put yourself out there) and that opens up a whole new world. I think Mandy's done great seeing that winter through (memories in their own right) and now he'll get to enjoy the people and country in festival mood - on ya Mandy.

    Taking a mate and some booze for a walk in the hills, of course, if you'r inclined. Many people do it as part of their holidays, all over the world.

    It's one way to tire the kids out. Their whole body, not just their eyes and forefingers.
