Speaking Mongol

Learning Mongol is not for the weak of the heart. First, there are lots of sounds they make thru there nose that sound guttural. Most of the time, when our guide Sara was talking to our driver Hurle, I could not figure out if Hurle was clearing out his throat or saying “Yes”. Turns out he was saying Yes all along. Which made Roger and I a little wary of clearing our throats not knowing what we might land up saying Yes to!!!

Before we boarded our flight to Gobi, Sara threw a curveball at us. She showed us her boarding pass and asked

“Can you say my name?”
Me: “It starts with three consonants. I am out.
Roger studied it up and down and asked “Is that where we are going today?”
