Out There

When I was young, we had several labels for places that were in the middle of nowhere: Timbuktoo, Siberia and outer Mongolia being a few that I remember. Just to show that we are not too far gone, we traveled only as far as Inner Mongolia, which is part of China. Though a short trip, we enjoyed sleeping in a yurt on the Mongolian grasslands and traveling to look across the Ergun River to a small Russian village on the other side. (And yes, that is an air conditioning unit on the side of the yurt. Remember, we are not too far gone.)
