Wow, Mongolia, huh?

Yes, Mongolia. Contrary to what you might have heard in the past about Peace Corps assignments, I chose Mongolia (and well, I like to believe that Mongolia chose me).

Under the new application released July 2014, candidates are given a choice to rank their top three country choices and program areas (Health, Education, Youth Development, Agriculture, Environment, Community Economic Development). “Mongolia in Any Area” was my number one choice and in January 2015, that dream came true.

So let’s begin with one of the catchiest national anthems out there. It’s become one of my goals to learn this by heart because national anthem aside, it’s a pretty awesome song. My school will blast an instrumental version twice a day before morning and afternoon classes and students will stand up, rest a hand to their heart, and sing their hearts out.

The Country & the Climate

The History

The Language
