Peace Corps Business Development Volunteer in Mongolia Helps a Local Monastery Promote Tourism


[singing] This is a Mongolian ger, a traditional home that the Mongolians live in. It’s nomadic, it’s portable, it’s pretty sturdy and warm in the winter, although every winter we make a fire every day, every morning. It’s pretty much about the size of a studio apartment but you have everything you need. There’s a little cooking area, sleeping area, a desk for studying or doing language work. I was reading a lot about Mongolia before I came and Mongolian history is very deep with Buddhism, very connected. And I decided that when I came to Mongolia, I’d like to work with the Buddhist community here. We’re here at the monastery developing a ger camp for the tourists as well as a large format photography book for some small income generation for the monastery. Monk: We are working as a team on this book for the monastery�
