Two weeks in Mongolia
From : Malcolm Campbell
The well known Australian F1A sportsman and photographer has prepared a photo essay that shows Mongolia as well as some of the flying. Excellent photos, Great for those who went or who did not go to Mongolia this summer.
These might not fit into a SEN email but I thought at least you and Lindy would enjoy them.
Well I've finally got around to build up a set of photos that captures what we saw in Mongolia in July, apart from the flying competition.
We stayed in basic accommodation 50 km from Mongolia. The roads are either rough concrete or dirt / mud. Driving is an adventure, so we had our own full-time driver for two weeks. He even slept on the bus!
There are a few shots of the flying interspersed with our bus trips, and the photos are in chronological order. Hope you like them.
