Photographer's Note

Not a pretty sight, but one in the true TE spirit, showing life as it really is, for many of the inhabitants of Mongolia. I don't recall seeing a similar shot on TE before.

Of Mongolia's total population of 3 million, approximately 1/3, or a million people, live in the capital city of Ulan Bator. Most of them, in 'gers' like this, or decrepit, Russian style apartment buildings.

The outskirts of the city has packs of dogs guarding each 'ger'.
