Gone herdin'

Yesterday, I left my home for a trip to Mongolia.  I'm going with a health care NGO called Nomadicare, which works to extend the health care available to nomadic herders in culturally relevant and sustainable ways.  My plan is stay with the Dukha reindeer herders in northern Khovsgol province through the winter, living part-time in their winter camp and part-time in the nearby village of Tsagaannuur, where there is a rural hospital in which I can do some volunteer work.

Posting will most definitely be sporadic if it occurs at all over the next 8 months to year.
