After the National park we traveled back to Ulan Bator (Ulaanbaatar), the capital of Mongolia. Mongolia is one of the biggest countries in the world. In Mongolia there are around 2,9 million people and in the capital there are around 1,3 million. Looking at the total area of this big country, 2,9 million people is almost nothing and that detail is very interesting since there is a very huge area where you can go around without seeing any people. The biggest part, 45% are living in the capital. One part of the whole population are nomads, a community of people who live from one place to another. You can find more information at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongolia .
We checked in to our room at the Khabu hotel and our tourist guides left us. The hotel room was close to the central station and it was also easy to walk in to the central part of this big city.
After a shorter break at the hotel we started our adventure in Ulan Bator. We noticed that it is too loud on the streets. Almost all car drivers were pressing their car horns and it was little bit like when you see and hear a group of cars driving around in the city when 2 people are merrying somewhere on the Balkans.
In Ulan Bator it was more like stress caused by combination of heat and to many cars in the traffic.
We took an easy walk and looked around. After a while we decided to rest in a café called Amsterdam (On the central street called: Энх Тайваны Өргөн Чөлөө). After that we continued to the big square, the Sukhbaatar Square with the national museum and a dinosaur museum. On the Sukhbaatar Square we saw a big Chinggis Khan statue.
Finally we decided to eat something and we did it in the Blue Sky tower close to this big square.
With this dinner we finished our adventure and we went back to the hotel.
Next morning we were back in the train – this time it was the last one part of the train trip. It was quite a sad experience knowing that it was the last part of this nice trip. We passed through the Gobi desert which covered a big part of Mongolia and it was very dry and very hot outside the train.
At the end we reached the border with China and at that time it was night. However, Mongolia was a great experience!
