Last weekend was another first …. I went and saw a ballet with a few colleagues.  A meal at the Buddhist restaurant followed by the Mongolian National Ballet performing Swan Lake.  A beautiful ballet in a beautiful theatre.


This Friday we had the first Norton birthday whilst in Mongolia.

A night out for Me and Pete at a great Indian Restaurant…


Followed by a spot of late night shopping.

Oh and then because we hadn’t eaten enough this weekend, we thought we’d have a bit of Sunday brunch at the Shangri La.  Well it was a friend’s birthday!  This was my second helping of dessert.  It was a stunning selection of food, ate better and ate more than I have since arriving in Ulaanbaatar 8 weeks ago.

Followed by a week of strict dieting I think!
