Mongolia Pics 6: Turtle Rock And Farmer's Tans.




The nights have been busier than usual lately, which has cut seriously into my Mongolia entry-writing time. And it has nothing to do with the Olympics either (Although the girlfriend's hooked on that shit like NBC's a crackpipe.). No, you can blame it on things like capitalism, Japanese technology, and another bout of planning my escape from real life. Anyway, in this photo I'm posing in front of Turtle Rock in Terelj National Park. As you can see, the turtles in Mongolia are severely deformed.

These camels were pretty bummed to be alive.

This Buddhist temple had an unnecessarily large number of steps. Buddhists probably have the firmest asses of all religions.

Damn you, Buddhist stairs! The temple looks new, because it is new. The Communists destroyed almost all of the old temples ... probably because they hated physical fitness.

Mongolian horses are surprisingly small. Looking at them it's hard to imagine that the Mongolian hordes used these to sweep across Asia and terrorize the world. Maybe everybody looked like a fifth-grader back then. For those of you admiring my glorious farmer's tan, it was the proud achievement of countless hours of Mongolian sun exposure.

What the horses lacked in size, they more than made up for with their testicle-crushing talents. Good God. Galloping was a very tearful experience that wiped out many unborn future children. Needless to say, walking was very difficult the next day.

They don't have full leather chaps in Mongolia, so only our calves got gay.
