Mongolia Pics 7: The End.




Can't believe it, but this is the last batch of my Mongolia photos that I'll be posting on here. Then it's back to entries about rampant intoxication, Neoclassicism, and the menstruation cycles of eagles.

The dogs in Mongolia look like they're part coyote, like the one in our camp that followed us on our hike. She was very friendly, but she might've just wanted to be near us to see if any of us would show any signs of weakness or disease while climbing the mountain. Out-of-shape tourists make for easy prey and have very tender flesh.

If it weren't for The Karate Kid, about 19% of my photos would not exist. Thank you, Ralph Macchio, for making my life in the digital photography age a little easier.
