In my last Post .. APR 1, 16 .. APRIL FOOLS’ / ALL FOOLS’ DAY 2016 .. I posted many photos of The Blue Sky Hotel and Tower.
Today I was in the heart of downtown Ulaanbaatar doing a lot of ‘running-around’. Suddenly I found myself fatigued. As I often do when this happens to me I went into The Blue Sky to pause, use their immaculate rest room and just stop my ‘busy-ness’ to catch-my-breath. I called Patti and we had several very pleasant visits.
Then it struck me .. I experienced one of my ‘Ah-Ha’ moments.
“It is so nice to be here. I haven’t had a snack in the Coffee Shop since last November. Why not do this rest-stop properly?”
I decided to make another visit to the Coffee Shop located off the main entry lobby.
Off to the right of the above photo is the area that I sit in and pause during a busy day.While sitting in the above rest area I look back at the main entrance.
Two photos showing the entrance to the Coffee Shop on the East side of the main lobby.
Let’s step into the Coffee Shop. My ‘favorite’ table is in the extreme far corner.
“Hello Captain! I haven’t seen you since last November 2015 when you and Patti visited me. So nice to see you back!”Sitting at my table looking South to my right at the Coffee Shop.
‘Panning right’ ..
Off to the left in the above photo notice the ‘Goodie Display’ ..
Oh-My Oh-My Oh-My!
A close-up of the above ‘Burger & Hot Dog’ menu ..
“When I order I am going to order the Big Mama Combo!” .. Notice the price .. 10,500 Mongolian ₮ which is US $ 5.17.
I placed my order for one Big Mama Combo and walked back to my one and only favorite table ..
The above and below photos show you ‘my view’ looking North from my table.Chinggis Khaan Square directly ahead and the Ulaanbaatar Opera House on the right.
While we are waiting for my Big Mama Combo to arrive .. Below are two photos of my two recent Burger King Whoppers.
These two Whoppers cost me 7,900 Mongolian ₮ which ‘translates’ to US $ 3.88. Not bad for two pretty sizable Whoppers.
Keep in mind that I am in a fancy, first class hotel. I am NOT in a hamburger-joint that does one and only one thing .. hamburgers.
Hello Blue Sky Big Mama Combo!
A Double Cheeseburger with a ‘Coke’ and Potatoes .. US $ 5.17! .. Hello! A nice little ‘hot face washcloth’ on the left above. NOT French Fries! No! Oven baked-to-perfection seasoned potato slices!
I eat such a burger by literally dividing it into two separate burgers.This way I can really enjoy it without making a total mess out of such a beautiful burger.
These two photos are primarily for Patti. True to my opinon of catsup and mustard on a burger I ate neither.And out the exit we go.
Do all of you understand why The Blue Sky is such a local favorite for me? I keep saying to myself ..
“Someday I will stay the night here.”
Smiling From Ear To Ear .. Cap ..
