Dear family,Can you believe it? I actually survived the Mongolia winter! Technically, there are about 18 days until the Es is officially over (9 weeks of 9 days of cold--totaling 81 days), but everything is thawing out. I got so excited about it that I took my mask off last p-day and just walked around nice and clear during the warmest part of the day--then I came down with a cold. Go figure. Just because the weather is starting to warm up doesn't mean the sicknesses are gone. However, with all of the Dayquil and Nitequil, I can do anything, even sleep at night. I am officially going to retire my heavy duty boots today (except for maybe hikes that I am going to go on) and then by the time this transfer ends, I am going to also retire my heavy coat.
These are from day of transfer
So This is one of the daughters of my investigator, after they accepted their baptismal invitation, they pulled out the mutton ribs to celebrate (yep, you eat all of the fat chunks and everything) and she braided my hair.Also, I pulled out a new mask to use, you change it pretty much weekly, and look at that color difference.
