I just thought they were taking the piss at that point and it took until the evening for it to sink in.I so happy for them both and I can wait but God canada goose outlet store uk it kicks your life into perspective when the siblings you grown up with your entire life are having kids.I canada goose outlet in montreal gonna need more money so I can buy their love canada goose outlet mississauga and be the cool uncle hahaha!FootballRobb canada goose outlet real 4 14,419 points submitted 1 month agoShit im late. Oh well. Am a Mongolian. And I’m perplexed by canada goose outlet toronto the amount of Mongolians on reddit. wtf thought I was the only Mongolian here. Taanar haana baisin be?!?! canada goose outlet vip Lets all come out of our holes and conquer Reddit.?anyways, nothing big really going on tbh, just like any other country, life is blooming there.I guess ill clear up some pretty canada goose kensington parka uk popular misconceptions about Mongolia and just provide with some cool ish(?) facts:As the other guy mentioned, those ”Mongolian BBQ” places you see all around town is pure bullshit. Our ancestors didnt eat stuff like that, and we sure as hell dont eat that except at our own ”Thai” canada goose jacket outlet uk or ”Chinese” restaurants. Our food (traditionally) consists of mostly meat, mostly from lamb or beer, with lamb being extremely common. We usually boil these and either eat em canada goose outlet woodbury with veggies, or make it into nice soup. We also eat food called ”Buuz”, which looks similar to a dumpling, except bigger in size. Edibles (no 420 sorry) and drinkables made of dairy is also common. Things like yoghurt, dried curds, milk tea canada goose jacket outlet and kumis. Kumis is a sour milk like drink made by fermenting a mare’s milk. The people love to drink it, especially when going to the countryside. There are some cases of much of it causing people to get tipsy due to the fermentation. Good shit. But that’s the traditional stuff, an average regular Joe living in the city wouldnt eat those canada goose outlet boston stuff all the time. People mostly cook food with rice, meat, veggies etc. You know the standard stuff. We also have many famous restaurants and eateries here like most other countries. KFC, Burger king, Pizza Hut are all here. However for some, these restaurants are considered a delicacy where they only go once in a while.While traditional sports such as wrestling, bow and arrow, horse racing are common especially during national holidays, the global sports are what the most youth is all about. Soccer and basketball are extremely popular. Baseball and hockey not official canada goose outlet so much. Whenever theres an open space somewhere, you can be sure that some kids will kick some balls there. However our national teams suck in terms of team sports. Maybe the notion that we were once canada goose outlet in canada fierce and arrogant horselords who dont take shit from nobody is still in our DNA and takes its toll during team plays? Who knows. Individual sports however, have brought quite a few joys to the nation. In many big events such as the Olympics, Mongolians do well every once in a while, bringing home gold, silver, bronze and all of them are celebrated proudly. I do hope I live to see the day that my country plays in a world cup, or atleast an Asian Cup or something.Although it is true we were quite ferocious in battles during the 13th century and upwards, we werent always the bad canada goose outlet usa guys the western media makes our ancestors to be. Genghis Khan was one of the first men to tolerate religious freedom, allowing canada goose outlet black friday people to worship whatever they like as long as they paid tribute to the Mongol Empire. The Mongol Empire also had canada goose outlet kokemuksia laws against looting, raping, murder, canada goose outlet mall fraud, etc. It was a well established empire that had its own strict rules and boundaries. Our recent history however is filled with revolutions and struggles. Things such as 200 years canada goose outlet of Manchurian dominance in Mongolia and the religious violence have really set our country canada goose outlet uk sale back. The entire history of Mongolia is very rich, long and complex, nevertheless very interesting. However I cant write it all here nor do I know the entire history.Think the word ”Mongolia”. What comes into your head? If the answer is people living in rural huts, riding horses, herding sheep and being nomadic, then you would be right. However, that part canada goose vest outlet of Mongolia is quickly fading away. Our whole population is at only 3,081,600. That is around 1/3 of the population of New York City alone. With 1.31 million in the capital city, almost half of the country’s population (46 lives in an urban environment. Completely toying with the notion that all Mongolians are barbarians riding horses and plowing women. The city life is quickly developing as more and more people seek refuge in the city rather than the harsh and blistering winter winds in the countryside.However, the capital city, Ulaanbaatar, is originally designed to withhold only over 500,000 people. Now crammed with more than a million, much of the people live in the traditional nomadic ”Ger”, but instead of in the countryside, far from eachother, they are cramped up together in what we call a ”Ger district”. These district are proving to be a huge problem as the air pollution tightens. The country is ranked 6 with most air pollution as of 2017. And this winter things only got worse. In fact, its gotten so worse that our youth finally decided to take action, pleading for help and organizing various activities to make the people aware of the growing problem of air pollution. People are being told to wear masks that filter out the polluted air. There have been reports that the pollution levels are extremely harmful, much so that the polluted air is equivalent for someone to smoke a few dozen packs of cigarettes. The air quality during the wintertime is in no way healthy for any child to be living in. And the Ger Districts dont help at all. You see, Ulaanbaatar is a city built in a valley between 4 big mountains surrounding it. Making the air exchange very minimum in and out of the city. Pollution made in the city stays in the city. People living in Gers need to stay warm, and to do that, they burn wood, coal, fossil fuels, or even sometimes any types of plastic. The smoke burned from all these materials go up the chimney. Now imagine for a second, hundreds, maybe even thousands of these, all cramped up in one district. Yeah.Since globalization is a thing, and Mongolia is part of the world (After all, we’re between two of the greatest nations right in history), things like social media, cultural diversity, global culture are very much a thing. Everyone uses canada goose outlet 2015 social media and are obsessed by it. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter are all extremely common and everyone wants to voice their opinion nowadays. Mongolian teenagers are affected by alot of aspects of western culture. Netflix is here, people like western tv shows, we watch Game of Thrones on HBO or in huge auditoriums near the central department store, the Avengers fangirling is real. Basically anything you could expect from most teenagers around the world, is the same in Mongolia.Speaking of socializing and teens. Clubbing and nightlife is becoming huge in Mongolia. Well, mostly Ulaanbaatar. Teenagers at the age of 14,15 are already going out, some canada goose outlet in usa sneaking out with their daddys BMWs. The clubs are affected by money, and will let just about anyone inside, though lately rules might have been getting more strict. It is considered ”normal” in the teenage culture to have smoked cigarettes, drinking alcohol, having underage sex. Although I guess you could say the same about most countries.Most of the youth spend their time in PC gaming places, with most being ’addicted’ to games like Dota, CS, PUBG. It is encouraged to play sports and spend time outdoors. However it is rare to find a place canada goose outlet jackets to do such activities. Sports recreational areas and parks are extremely rare. Very rare soccer fields, very small but trashed basketball courts, dusty and gravel filled open spaces are common. When there is a nice park or open space, it is often packed full of people trying to get away canada goose outlet online store review from their busy stressful http://www.canadagoosecanadaoutlet.com lives.The city planning in Ulaanbaatar is very poor, although it is turning into a big city, filled with skyscrapers. It still lacks most basic things that make a decent city. These include proper transition systems, clean paved walkways, biking roads, proper lightning system, and most importantly, the traffic. The traffic is horrendous and the jams could get you canada goose outlet buffalo stuck in one place for hours if you’re unlucky enough to be in it during peak hours. Many road constructions take place with the taxpayers money however ironically, these roads seem to break down every 6 months. There are buses going places in the city however no subtrain systems at all. Although to make up for it, the taxis are pretty damn cheap, and many people with a car usually does a taxi service for canada goose premium outlet some easy bucks.We have the worlds largest Man and a Horse statue. Its that of Genghis Khan and its few dozen kilometres outside the capital. Its beautiful and certainly a place to visit if you’re in Mongolia.Speaking of places to visit: Mongolian countryside is the place to be rather than the city. Although some areas are affected by desertification. Our nomadic lifestyle treated the lands well and in turn, these lands blessed us with its beauty. Heres a few you could check out off the top of my head:Erdenezuu Monastery, in Kharkhorin cityTerelj National Park, few KM outside the city. Mongolian version of grand canyonGobi DesertKhorgiin Togoi Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur. A volcanic crater beside a huge lake. In Arkhangai regionAltai Tavan Bogd Mountain rangeBogd Khan MountainTheres alot going down in Mongolia, and life is happening just the same as anywhere else. If you’re up for a wild adventure then definitely Mongolia is the place to be. However I shouldnt say to expect a 5 star western luxury when traveling through the countrysides. As most part is left untouched and wild. But hey, thats the beauty isnt it.
