U is for Ulaanbaatar

Ulaanbaatar (Red hero) is the capital city of Mongolia. In English it is written as Ulan-bator. It is the largest city in Mongolia with over one million (2008) people.

S is for Smokie

Anne watched them in Blackpool and I watched their visit in Mongolia on Mongolian TV and danced to their songs in the late 1990’s in the night clubs of Ulaanbaatar. Smokie played a two night sell out concert to 25,000 people in Ulaanbaatar. As the open air stadium was full another 60,000 fans stood outside listening to them. (Thanks, Anne) Every Mongolian over 30 will remember them well. My friend was the interpreter during their visit. Here I’ll share my favourite song with you. Enjoy! Have you heard of them? Where and when? What

Q is for Quotes

I love quotes. In fact, quotes inspire, motivate, toughen, challenge and excite me. In my book Mongol I am starting each chapter with a quote. So today I would like to share with you some of my favourite quotes.   “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” – Robert Brault “You make a living by what you earn; you make a life by what you give.” – Winston Churchill ”Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great makes you feel
