Belated Pictures

Above are pictures from the swearing-in ceremony. The health group is the left picture, the business group is the right picture. The middle picture is Ashley and Leon (singing group).

Weekly Update: The past week has been fairly uneventful. Ashley has set about planting herbs in pots on our window sill. She has also made multiple batches of this quick-bake bread that includes local berries. Justin made window screens to keep the flies out of the apartment.

At work, Justin is working on a website and helping with translations for World Vision projects. Also, the new fiscal year begins 10/1, so we are working on next years' projects (agriculture development, business training, etc). Ashley's department is having a training this weekend, so she is spending part of her weekend there. They are preparing for the 85th anniversary of the hospital later this month. We are both actively involved in teaching English to coworkers.

Here is the first picture of our bedroom. Justin is re-assembling the beds and putting them together (2 twins).

Here is the view from our bedroom window. We've been stringing up rope between the trees to dry our clothes. It works very well. The windows are south-facing, which enables us to grow plants on the window sleeve.

This is the bathroom. The water tank in the upper left corner supplies hot water to the kitchen sink, bathroom sink, and shower. However, the tank leaks if the main water line is on, so we just fill up the tank and use it, then refill it, and repeat. Justin had to fix the internals of the toilet to get it to flush, which it does now.

This is the kitchen. Small table in the lower left, electric stove, sink, and refrigerator. We have to do food-prep on the table or window sill.

This is a picture from the swearing-in ceremony in Ulaanbaatar. We are both wearing our Mongolian traditional attire.
