Welcome, Corner Readers

How flattered we are that a quick comment to Mr. Derbyshire on his post re: barbarism vs. civilization would result in a link to this lowly blog from no place other than The Corner. We are deeply honored.

More than anything, we hope that this blog gets people thinking about, travelling to, and investing in, Mongolia. The Land of the Eternal Sky is making rapid progress out of the mess that the Soviet Union made of it, and the backwardness from which it had hitherto been. We're here to chronicle that progress and to give the world a place to watch it happen.

Thanks to the Derb for posting, and and to you, gentle reader, for stopping by.

Thank you Nabetz. I stopped in after reading Derb's comments and saw the link.

Just yesterday I saw (read?) a reference from National Geographic regarding your fair land. It pointed out that ya'll are indeed making progress since the fall of the Soviet empire. It also pointed to the warmth of the people. I hope we'll be able to visit.

To tell you the truth, I'm an American of European stock. But my fellow blogger ("Mongol") is about as Mongolian as they come. I also have an extensive Mongolian family (by marriage) in Mongolia.

Mongolia is by far the coldest land I've ever visited in terms of temperature (Ulaan Baator is the coldest national capitol in the world), but by far the warmest with regard to hospitality and cordiality. It's an absolutely amazing place and even more amazing people. By all means, do visit.

I recently spent 16 days visiting your beautiful country. I was inspired by the gorgeous landscapes, warm and hospitable people and the rich and ancient culture. My fellow travelers and I have wonderful, lasting memories of all of this and are sharing our photos and stories with one and all. Many people are now eager to come visit. Wishing you and your people well.

Thank you all for your comments, but most of all for seeing our land first hand.
I am sure that not only those who visited Mongolia are leaving with countless memeries, but also Mongolians themselves are left with perminant memories of people who don't look like them, and yet who are just like them. People with problems, with questions and fears, searching for endless answers...

Not to compliment the Reds, but if it wasn't for those commies, we wouldn't even exist today. We'd be just another autonomous region of China, living in a backwards religious type country like Tibet instead of a secular, modern thinking one.
