Favorite thing: When you're outside Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia has some of the cleanest air I've ever encountered. When we travelled between Karakorum and Ongi Temple in the Gobi desert, I kept smelling this wonderful fragrance that I just couldn't put my finger on what it was or where it was coming from. We stopped where some other tourists had stopped and I got talking to an American woman about the smell. She picked something from the ground and let me smell it and that was it! Wild rosemary! Also in the ground was wild chives as well as wild mushrooms. I could've started a meal with all of this at my feet!
