A Young Mongolian Contortionist

Right outside our office building, I saw a young girl in an extraordinary position: standing on her hands, upside down, her legs arching backwards over her head, and her feet resting on a bench. A young contortionist in training, practicing under the guidance of her grandmother. It was much more stimulating than the coffee I had planned to drink.

The grandmother spoke Russian, so I was able to talk to her. She let me take a picture and make a video.

I never expected to see something like this by the office. How lucky I am. Mongolia is an amazing place.
