We were expecting to have a wonderful time but everything exceeded our expectations. We had the time of our lives.....both Glenn and I enjoyed every minute of every adventure. We were so happy to get to share the Naadam Festival with you. You were great to take us to all the events and spend the time with us. It was such a great experience that we'll never forget. I am trying to get my pictures so that I can e-mail some to you. I am not good on the computer but I will keep trying. Zola, thank you so very, very much for everything you did to make our trip so special.
