Fall in Bayan-Olgii

Eagle Festival- Olgii City, Bayan-Olgii '11- perhaps the last place in the world they still bred eagles to hunt

Kazakh Wedding

Walk to Eagle Festival-- 2 kilometers, 2 hours later

We thought we could trick the police and not pay; they caught us shortly after we got there

I get visitors quite often-- these are my 5th graders
View from my balcony
A view one snowy morning from my balcony-- life's not too bad
