Highly recommended
I had a fantastic evening with Bee and his family. He picked me up at my hotel and we travelled to the suburbs of Ulaanbaatar. The view from Bee’s Ger was great and it was interesting to cook and eat delicious Mongolian food. Bee spoke excellent English and was enthusiastic and entertaining. He also taught me how to play Mongolian games with the Ankle Bones. After dinner we headed back into Ulaanbaatar by bus which was interesting as I’d not used public transport in Ulaanbaatar until then.

Bee met me in person and we travelled to his ger (tent home) to the north of UB city centre. There, he and his wife welcomed me into their beautiful ger and were enthusiastic to tell me all about Mongolian life and culture, to learn about my life and interests, and to share some cooking and food with me. We enjoyed homemade snacks and tea whilst chatting. Then I was shown how to make a traditional Mongolian "closed" soup, which we ate together once it was cooked (delicious!). Finally, I was shown how to make steamed dumplings and we made a large batch together; we ate some once they were cooked, and I was presented with a jar full to take with me for later. Bee accompanied me back to my accommodation in the city.
