It was such a great place we three decided to stay another day. Unusual for Mongolia there was a lot of dead wood to keep the fire going also dried dung to top it up. Rick got his fishing rod out and was unsuccessful but did see to lads up to their waists in the freezing water on the ledge of a very deep river spearing fish. I made a hand line to try and catch something but my hands were so cold I couldn't put the bait on the hook. So back to the fire where our clothes were drying and a very chilled day in both senses. We sat round the fire while Dennis told his stories. In the afternoon this big GAZ-54 truck get stuck by the rocks in the river where Pete took his dunking the previous day. The driver found some thin wire to attatch to his trailer in an attempt to drag it out. It kept snapping and he'd try again. Dennis and I stood watching, never feeling more helpless. The Mongolian's perseverance, determination and ingenuity is to be admired as they go about their daily lives battling the elements without tools or technology. He did get it out of the river by himself in the end. Of course. We saw a Russian built 4WD mini bus get stuck in the same river, it sounded like it was only firing on 3 cylinders, then the clutch began to slip as it got wet, water was coming in, passengers looked anxiously out the windows. The driver put it into gear and wound it out with the starter motor and spluttered on. The guys on horseback, the Kamaz and minibus were the only traffic to pass that day and I had trouble in the same river the following morning.
