"I spent my spring semester abroad in Mongolia, based in Ulaanbaatar. At first the city-- with its freezing temperatures, dizzying traffic, post-Soviet buildings, and ger camps-- felt impenetrable. But gradually, my friends and I created a home for ourselves; we took pleasure in each little cafe, buuz restaurant, each wheezing bus route and monument we passed. Eventually, we got around through landmarks, just as the Mongolians do."
