Spring is here in Outer Mongolia, but it does not bring with it singing birds, green trees and tulips blooming. Noooooooooooooooooo. If you were to ask a Mongolian what season of the year they dislike the most…the answer is always SPRING! Why you ask? Well, there is a saying that you can see four seasons in one day during springtime. And yes, I have witnessed this. It snows, snow melts, it rains, a dust storm blows through the city and then the birds comes out, the sun peaks through the clouds and it is warm!! Crazy weather patterns! So, needless to say, I do not like Spring in Mongolia! But, I am hopeful that the summer is just around the corner.
