Dalandzadgad

A journal entry from: November 2011 until...

Got to Dalandzadgad and our first shower and electricity since leaving Ulaanbaatar. Dalandzadgad has a lot of mining money flowing into it, but as usual most of the residents will never see it. Lots of people drunk in the street in the middle of the day.

Had an enjoyable night playing poker with a group we met doing a similar tour in the opposite direction. 

In the morning we took a detour to look for ancient cave paintings. We didn't find any, but did find an eagle aerie, which was a nice consolation. Mamma bird wasn't around which is probably fortunate for us.
