Nessim Stevenson, filmmaker from Beirut, Lebanon, traveled to and made this short film/documentary about Mongolia last year. I think it’s a great snapshot of the country and does a wonderful job of capturing the wild beauty of its nature and the gentle warmth of its people. Fun fact: the scene with the meat market caught my eye because the female butcher is one of the women from whom I have purchased beef in the recent past.

Here are a few scattered photos from our trip to southern California. It was so much fun to see friends and family, especially since we don’t see extended family very often. If we missed you while in Cali, we are sorry! If you’d still like to catch up with us while we are in the same time zone, we’d love to chat/skype/etc. 🙂
Now we are back up in Washington and looking forward to seeing more friends and family! Currently, we are with Eric’s cousins in his home town, and it’s lovely to see them again. This particular cousin lived with us a few years back, and we’ve very much enjoyed catching up and laughing. Laughter is good. ❤
