ULN to HVD
Clear with a good seat most of the way across Mongolia, then into some clouds and out again as we approached Khovd. Unlike the Koreans on the last flight, these Mongolians like to look out the windows—they even take pictures like I do, move from seat to seat about the cabin to chat and laugh.
Although our route took us north of the Gobi Desert, it is still very dry. Near Ulaanbaatar there was some farming, but the farther west, the less likely. The last quarter of the flight passed over land that is almost entirely missing signs of habitation—the only marks are those made by water and wind.
