Yes I am alive. No I won't be keeping up with this blog very well. Work is super busy! I'm teaching classes and making movies. Life is as it should be.
This weekend they winterized my ger! Teachers from my school came to help me do it. And by 'help me' i really mean...they did it. Like i knew what i was doing!
First they took off all the layers of cotton, plastic and felt. Re-adjusted the inner skeleton for maximum wind blockage, then added an extra layer of super thick felt. That was covered in plastic, then the cotton cover was put back on. Finally they poured sand all around the edges to seal out the wind and the rain. And then, Wa-la! New blankets on th bed. I'm ready for Mongolian winter. Check out the pictures below!
