Photographer's Note

An impromptu stop at a small town in Mongolia between Lake Hovsgol & Ulan Bator. Apologies for the small size but the film processing lab scanned them at 587p rather than the usual 1770 p I get in Korea. I think this is the town of Tsetserleg.

"Tsetserleg (Mongolian: Цэцэрлэг, garden) is the capital of Arkhangai Aimag (province) in Mongolia. (North Hangay). It lies on the northeastern slopes of the Khangai Mountains, 360 miles (600 km) southwest of Ulan Bator. It has a population of 16,553 (2000 census, with Erdenebulgan sum rural territories population was 18,519), 16,618 (2003 est.), 16,300 (2006 est.)[1].

Tsetserleg is geographically located in the Bulgan sum in the south of the aimag. It is not to be confused with Tsetserleg sum in the north. In 1992 Tsetserleg was designated as Erdenebulgan sum, which has area of 536 kmイ."

That's the door of the Russian jeep that got me & several other Western tourists, from Ulan Bator to Lake Hovsgol & back. The driver wanted to stop for a few minutes & buy some snacks.
