JUL 20, 15 (Post 2) .. MY APARTMENT IN ULAANBAATAR MONGOLIA ..

I am sitting here in the city of Ulaanbaatar located in the north and east of Mongolia.

The first map below shows you exactly where Mongolia is located. Mongolia is land-locked between Russia to the North and China to the South.

The second map below shows you a closer view of Mongolia and of the capital city Ulaanbaatar ..

I want all of you to meet my friend Happy who has agreed to let me stay in one of his own personal properties ..

Never have I seen any human being so ‘live-up-to-their-name’ as Happy !!

He is truly such a very happy HAPPY man ..

In the background of each of these photos you can see several of the other buildings in this planned-community-complex ..

DSCN3830[1]

Built in the 1950s with financing from Russia .. At the time this was a state-of-the-art community ..

Below are several very detailed maps of my building’s location here in Ulaanbaatar Mongolia ..

In the first map below .. the left red balloon points to my building and the right red balloon points to the very heart and the center of Ulaanbaatar Mongolia .. Chinggis Khaan Square.

The below map really gives you the precise location of my Building Number 8 ..

Below are photos of my apartment here in Happy’s home.

Is it NICE ?

Panning to the right of the above photo below you see a beautiful wall-hanging. It is an enormous oriental carpet. Look closely at the lower right of the photo below.

Above on the small table you may notice that I have some company here with me.

I have some very sweet ‘pets’ to keep me company here in MY HAPPY PLACE ..

I have gone to the window side of my room. Looking back .. on the left is the oriental rug wall-hanging. Do you notice anything else?

In my room .. at the foot of my bed .. for the first time ever-in-my-life I have .. for the time being .. assuming that I leave this wonderful place .. which I may .. and then again .. I may not ever leave Mongolia .. BABA KAN YOU HAD BETTER SLIP ON BACK TO THE U.S.A. TO DEAL WITH ME AT SOME POINT .. /SIGNED/ UNCLE SAM AND THE I.R.S. ..

“Captain .. What are you going to eat to nourish yourself?”

I have .. at my disposal .. A COMPLETE FULL KITCHEN!!

Looking back towards the entry into MY KITCHEN ..

Lord God Of Abraham .. You’ve got-to-be kidding .. It looks to me like YOU want me here in Mongolia!!

Now for some photos looking outside from my apartment. This first photo looks out from my room.

The below two photos were taken from my kitchen.

The first photo looks to the left in the direction of Peace Avenue in the distance. In the lower foreground you see the roof  and part of an adjoining building. This building is the Sunshine Hotel.

The below photo looks to the right from my kitchen window.

As I noted earlier I am in a planned urban community.

Now we will step outside and look at my building from ground level.

Looking up the road in front of my building. The Sunshine Hotel is on the left below.

Looking up at my building from the point at which I snapped the above photo.

A photo looking back at my building. My apartment is on the lowest level upon which the sun is shining. It is directly straight ahead and to the right of the indented section of the building.

Over And Out (OAO) before I just evaporate into the atmosphere!

Cap .. aka .. Kanbaatar ..

And now?

THE REST OF THE STORY ..

What has happened above did NOT .. ‘Just Happen’ ..

Below is a photo of my friend Deegi .. Deegi is pronounced as DAY-ghee ..

DSCN4638[1]

I first met Deegi at the Chinggis Khaan International Airport on July the 16th as Deegi welcomed all of us* to Ulaanbaatar Mongolia ..

Make no mistake here .. I am but one small part of a larger group who were invited to come to Mongolia.

DSCN3420[1]

Do you want a SWEET HEART ?

You have just met one .. Deegi ..

DSCN3422[1]

I AM SO SORRY .. DEEGI HAS LONG-AGO BEEN SPOKEN FOR!

GUESS WHAT MY FRIENDS .. GUESS WHAT !!

Deegi has her ‘circle-of-friends’ here in Ulaanbaatar ..

“Yes Captain?”

May I introduce to you one of Deegi’s VERY HAPPY friends .. 

DSCN3828[1]

“There’s something happening here .. What it is ain’t exactly clear ..” .. ‘FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH’ .. STEPHEN STILLS AND BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD .. JANUARY 1967 ..

Happy and his wonderful apartment just did not suddenly appear out-of-the-woodwork. Oh No .. I did not just bump-into Happy as I walked down the street. I feel like an invisible author seemingly wrote a script and as a result here I sit.

What more can I possibly say .. Thank You So Much Deegi .. You are one amazing human being ..

Deegi .. I consider you to be what I call .. One Of God’s Eskimos ..

    Hi Cap,

    Wow! It didn’t take you long to get settled in an (very nice) apartment and with a Dell computer! In Andrej blog I checked on “Ulaanbaatar Mongolia” and that took me to Google with all kinds of photos and information about Mongolia! A lot of interesting information! Very nifty!

    I tried adding a comment – in fact two trys – to your other blog “com”, but when I tried to publish, my comment disappeared – never to return! Ha! I did notice that your location and elevation about 4,000 ft gets very cold in the Winter season, therefore It will be close to your cold temperature in your home states of Alaska! Of course, I can see that you are adjusting already and settled in!

    A question for you, did you plan a “group” trip, since you had photos of folks on your other blog to Mongolia; and since you mentioned you had POCs setup for different places you had planned to visit, it would be interesting to know the effort you put into organizing this trip – so far, you seem to have all the bases covered!!

    Claudia and I are certainly looking forward to more great stories of your trips in and around Mongolia! You “com” blog had a lot of nice photos!

    Have fun and enjoy your travels!!

    zilla
