Mongolian update

Day 4 of my stay

sunny 22 °C

Day 4 of my period in Nalaikh! Although it feels like I've been here for a much longer period already.
Last Thursday morning at 6 a.m. I arrived at the airport and was picked up by Ada and one of the ambulance drivers of the Health Center in Nalaikh in an ambulance Mongolian style! Quite strange, to all of a sudden walk in Mongolia and be in the apartment of Ada, but also very special of course! Nalaikh is nice and the surroundings are beautiful, the apartment is perfect, the neighbours are really friendly and the neighbourhood is also nice :) Next weekend I'll be moving to my 'own' apartment which I will rent from the daughter from the ambulance driver, and which is around the corner (and looks amazing!).
Ada and I did quite a lot already in these few days; from travelling with the local bus to Ulaanbaatar, meeting the director of the hospital, meeting up a few times with our interpreter, walking a few hours in the Xoroos (districts) of Nalaikh accompanied by at least 30 street dogs, shopping at the markets in Nalaikh and Ulaanbaatar and having a real Mongolian lunch :) all really nice experiences!
Although I still need to get used to the idea that I'm actually staying here for a few months, I'm really enjoying my stay so far and I'm looking forward to kind of start my (preparatory) work here in the health center.

Thinking of you! :)

Kiss,
Renée
