Crazy drivers here .. on way back to Ulaanbaatar almost got wiped out by a car turning blindly on to main road then we came to roadworks which blocked the road, the detour was about 2kms back, no signs at all. There have been unfinished roadworks absolutely everywhere, all look like they have been in progress for decades, the road to the UB airport has about 5 dirt lanes & piles of rock
Back to Puma Imperial hotel, went walking, to CD shop, the artists union art gallery, then to a bakery and coffee shop run by a French guy, good coffee. Dinner at Indian again, watched scintillating programme about wheat crops on the Moron channel on TV, windows open as hot inside, it became very quiet then huge snow flakes started falling.
Was -3c when we woke up but slept in t shirts & windows open as too warm inside, is going to reach 11 today, considered a high temperature. Snow everywhere, had a quick breakfast yoghurt apricots and omelet, driver picked us up, very drawn out checkin at airport, some problem with our China visa, now on board Air China for Beijing.
