Mongolian Girls at the Beach

Mongolia is like an anti-ocean, located thousands of kilometers away from the shore and sitting over a kilometer above sea level. It's not a surprise that you don't see Mongolians at the beach very often. So I consider myself very fortunate to have not only seen Mongolian girls at the beach, but to have gone swimming with one.

I've often said that one of the things I want to see before I die is a Mongolian girl under water (I had diving in mind, not a drowning). My dream came true: I went swimming with my colleague Tsolmon, and she kindly agreed to submerge herself for a second.

She was blurry, and my eyes stung in the salt water, but it was worth it.
