Ulaan Baatar

We only spent a few days in the city of Ulaan Baatar, but were happy we had the chance to explore this cool city. We loved just footin around town, but our favorite part was the plaza with all the Buddhist temples. After exploring the different temples, I definitely jumped on the Buddhist bandwagon. It is such an incredibly beautiful and peaceful religion and it was so nice to hang out and take it all in.

We went into the children's school and watched that little boy and a few others practice their chants. So cool.

Crazy, big Buddha!
All the old folks wear traditional Mongolian gear. So pretty!
