Buriad’s Ail Buyant Gol Mongolia 1993
I was looked after with great hospitality at Gereltsogt and Ganbold’s relatives.
Their sister Pagam and her husband Buriad was where I stayed. Their gers were by the Buyant Gol not far from Khovd town. They, all their family and most of the people I met with them spoke no English and my Mongolian was just a few words and to say what is that?. It was fun and a great body language learning experience being with them.
I had my letters from Gereltsogt so they knew what my aim was. While they were trying to arrange for me to go to Chandman’ Sum I was taken to their relatives, friends and entertained them with my circular breathing on two flutes, my anglii Khöömii and general joining in with their everday life. This including my inept attempt to milk the goats in the morning.
