I wasn't even going to get online today but I just HAD to see you arrived ok.
wow, Wow, WOW!
The pictures had me exclaiming, "There's Mongolian trees, and mountains, and temples, and people!!"
AWWWW for the bear; that's going to tickle some little folks!
It all looks so fascintating and FUN. I hope the language comes quickly. A word of the day type thing would be great! We could learn some too.

Well, I believe it now--the smile-producing photo of you in front of Gandan Khiid did it. Wonderful!

Dear CT: So happy to see you have arrived! I am enjoying your travelog so much--thanks, thanks! If you need another wool hat, just say the word--the needles are cranking here in the PacNW. Greetings to Tsomo, Mogi and Ganna from me. Looks like they are taking good care of you! Mary B

YAY, Gonchig! The pictures are wonderful, please keep them coming...now you've got me inspired to go to Mongolia sooner rather than later. Pity it's so far from there to Bhutan but you never know. The architecture of the temple is almost identical to the dzongs in Bhutan, by the way. All the best to you...

Сайн байну уу, Гончиг!

So happy you made it OK! Everything looks great. Very auspicious with the ravens and all. So what is Palzang in Mongolian?

Very glad to see that you made it safely. How wonderful that the people, language and location "resonate" for you.

I am very much looking forward to watching your bird list grow :)

How wonderful to see your happy smiling face! We had a lovely tsog last night - thought of you a lot yesterday and hoped all was going well - looks like the picture says it all. And hooray for the knitters too!

You're there!!! Did you throw up on the plane? The altar is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing, this is very exciting! Baavgai looks warm enough . . .

Probably no hummingbirds hardy enough for the climate - looking forward to raven pictures.

Hooray for you Gonchig!! I love the Pic of you in front of the temple...it really just seems to fit.
glad you are enjoying your new digs.

Holy cow! Cuzzin Tom is in Mongolia. It's a bit mindbending to imagine you over there on the other side of the world, but how wonderful that we get to read all about it and see pictures to boot! We're all still busy knitting away for the Dulaan Project. And scheduling another Knit In soon.

So glad you made it safely, Cuzz. Love the picture of you in front of the temple. Devin read my mind--you just seem to fit there.

Couldn't wait to get on the blog to see how you were doing and of course I started crying to see that you got in OK and were well, happy, warm, well fed and in good hands and had bird friends all ready. I look forward to reading all about your adventures. Keep eating that mutton.

Thank you everyone! It's so cool to have a cyber-cheering section!

Every minute I spend here, the more I like it. An instant feeling of "home". SO much is happening, so stay tuned.

P'zang: Sain Bain U to you, too. I'm looking into the Mongolization for Palzang, haven't turned it up yet. Get ready to have your mind blown. This place is too much.

Hooray! New home! So glad to see you really, truly made it!


Dear Gonkhig,

It's very nice to hear some news about Mongolia from you. We are very glad, your first impression is positive.
It's nice to see my altar in America.

Best regards,
Ganna
