Limo in Monoglia
Monday 22 February 1993
Mongolia is the sort of place that attracts oddities, perhaps because it is so far away from everything. Even a 1930s US limousine doesn't seem out of place. It was probably left behind by the Japanese at the end of the war when they controlled most of north China and were pushing into Outer Mongolia. Cars are still not common today; for one thing, there are hardly any roads. Yurts, the portable home of the Mongol tribes, are coming back in favour, especially since cheap oil from the former Soviet Union and Russian subsidies have come to an end. The country cannot afford to heat the Stalinist-style buildings of Ulan Bator, the capital, and the government has urged people to return to their traditional dwellings - warm and cheap.
