– a new movie, The Two Horses of Genghis Khan

– Who benefits from Mongolia’s riches?

– a NewsHour photoessay on nomadic life in Mongolia

– how are Mongolians adapting to the U.S. and western culture?

– and speaking of Mongolians in other nations, could there be thousands, if not millions of Mongolians scattered across Eurasia?

– what are White Mongolians? Might they represent direct descendants of the Golden Horde that did not make it back to Mongolia after the collapse of the Mongol Empire?

– speaking of the Golden Horde, note how long Mongolians occupied eastern Europe during this movie of 10 centuries of European history in 5 minutes.

we’ll sign off with another landscape view of one of Mongolia’s scenic natural wonders, Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur.
