Leaving Sainshand

Saturday afternoon we had one last affair, games and a performance by the young children. They were wonderful, so serious, and quite good, apart from the occasional slip and fall. After that we went to the (sole) gift shop and people shopped for souvenirs. At night we had a closed party for the kids, as a reward for doing so well all week, and Sunday was spent packing, visiting 2 fascinating museums (which were much better than I had expected), writing postcards, and resting.

We got to the station on time, where the train was about 30 minutes late. The time passed quickly though, especially when a group of students from the school came down to see us off. For some adults it went particularly quickly, as the Director toasted us with vodka in the traditional Mongolian manner, and we of course responded appropriately.
