Photographer's Note

The tour schedule to Lake Khovsgol, said an overnight stop in the small town of Hujirt, but the beds weren't made, & the room hadn't been cleaned, so our Russian tour jeep, continued on about another 20-30 km, until we reached this remote roadhouse, where we stayed the night. Along the way, locals were selling fresh berries in glass jars.

Bulgan is the name of the Province, or 'aimaag'. The structure at left, appears to be for hitching horses & camels for shaving. (The wool & hair is used to make gloves, blankets, etc, for the long, cold winters)

The lettering on the lower strut of the structure, reads HAADAM, which, in English, is 'Naadam'.
