As I got on the plane to Korea last month, I got slightly emotional about leaving. I was reminded that my PC service will have 8 months to go. Although I have no plans to extend my service, it still has been an important part of my life.Today, I am in Korea. I’ll be back in Mongolia before dark. However, excitement about returning has been numbed by the fact that it is January. Our Saftey and Security Manager reminded me of this via e-mail:

I would like to inform you that it is getting ver cold these days in Mongolia, especially, 11-16 Jan,It will be the coldest time in last 6 years in Mongolia.It will be -35-45C at night, and -25-35 at day time. 

For you Celsius challenged folk, that’s -31 to -49F at night and -13 to -31F during the day.


  1. Holy crap that’s cold.

    I still can’t believe I saw you!

  2. Dear Stacey,

    Hope you are well. I just came across your blog on Mongolia. Great stuff! I am writing to you because my partner and I are launching a website that will be populated with cross-cultural information about every country in the world. We will be looking to the web community to help do this with all the information being available for free. I was wondering if you and/or members from your community may be able to help us out with the Mongolia pages. We would love your input. Let me know if you would be open to this and I’ll send along a brief questionnaire. Please also feel free to check out the website, become a member (it’s free!) and add to the guide.

    Thank you for your time!
