Tsagaan Sar Treats

The last monthly meeting of the International Women's Association here in UB was a real treat for me. Pictured at the top are 3 very special ladies--all founding members of the association. Tumen, with gray hair, was the first woman to leave Mongolia for university. She was educated in Beijing then Moscow. She speaks 5 languages and served in the diplomatic corp all over the Soviet world as well as in Geneva & New York. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren are all over the world. Baljiniiam, in the brown traditional dress also served in the diplomatic corps. Daria, next to me, lived and worked in Germany for many years. AND, Corporal Hagan was there to present the Sister (aghh! forget her name :( ) with the local orphanage with the toys and things collected through the Toys for Tots here in UB. Be sure and check out the little Nomad cuties in the video clips ;)
