Location: Murun, Mongolia

The hotel in Murun was extremely disappointing, especially as we both were looking forward to it as a welcome change from the gers. Murun itself was interesting as we found a variety of shops, including a boot repairer for Claire’s boots, supermarkets and hairdressers. We did a pub crawl home (well 2 pubs), which allowed us to negotiate toilets (what is the best way to mime going to the toilet?), young boys trying to sell us a watch (going price 3, 00? 000? we couldn’t work it out) and of course a conversation with one of the local drunks. From there, it was back to the dive and dinner.
