Danielle came up to the ranch on Saturday night. Having just spent two years in Tanzania with the Peace Corps, she is taking the long way back to the States, from Beijing by train to Europe.

Danielle, Eggi, Mongon, Jonathan, and I went on a long ride on Sunday.

Sunday night, a lama performed a ceremony for auspiciousness in Martin and Minjee's ger, and then again in Tseren and Saraa's ger.

On Monday, Daka from Ulaanbaatar and her friend Erna from Switzerland arrived by Russian van on the first day of their three-week trip through northern Mongolia. Daka, Danielle, and I enjoyed the sauna Monday night.
