Asia-Mongolia-Tuv This is the largest statute of a horse in the world. It is of course the Statue of Chinggis Khann and includes a stairs to climb up to the top and restaurant and shops.
|I did not post this in Tuv as was rushing back. There was a post office at the complex which I purchased this postcard and they had a small selection of stamps|

Asia-Mongolia-Ulaanbaatar Here is another card showing the Naadam games. We were due to see the wrestling but on the second day it was raining heavily and gave it a miss. But still a lot of colour as you can see from the photos in the blog.
|I like this stamp. It shows a yurt which I slept in when in the Gobi desert. In the summer it was quite hot and everyone kept the door open at night.|

Asia-Mongolia-Ulaanbaatar This is the festival of Naadam held in July . This was the main reason for my visit. A very big occasion. It was in fact the first time that the newly elected President was presented after his win in the election.
|A red postmark from the main post office in Ulaanbaatar. The Post office itself is quite large right in the centre of town. A full selection of stamps on display.|
