We’re back after a week in the valley.
It’s an enormous space made of steppes and a multitude of small frozen rivers, lined by high hills. Erdenee has placed at our disposal the very large yurt that is unused during the winter.
The day after we settle in, he brings back a whole team of nomads to help him double the existing felt covering, edge the bottom of the yurt with a layer of dirt, and cut wood with a chainsaw.
After having shown us on a map where our nearest neighbours are (their camps are between 3 and 8 km from ours), he leaves us the keys and a good old shepherd dog to watch over our new residence.
