My Mongolian supervisor's friend from high school is a geologist. He took us along with him on an overnight trip deep into the Gobi Desert. The next morning, on our way back home, we stopped our truck so i could fill my empty water bottle with sand, to give to my American friends. He said he saw a grasshopper.
My friend and I lived with Mongolian host families during our summer training, and our duu's (Mongolian for younger siblings) would follow us everywhere, every day. After one Sunday afternoon study session at another Peace Corps Trainee's felt tent, our duu's came to pick us up.
