Can you tell the difference between Mongolians and Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Indonesian, Malaysian, Vietnamese, Singaporean, Philippine and Burmese people?

Well, first things first, they're all from different places. They speak different languages/dialects and they all have different facial features which you can recognize quite easily.

How come your school took you all the way to Mongolia?

And what surprised you most about what you saw?

Every year, we have to go on a trip (either locally or overseas) for CAS points (which is a requirement of the IB diploma). I chose to go to Mongolia this year and I guess the thing that surprised me the most was the fact that the country was more developed than I expected it to be...and that Mongolian horses are very tame!

Wow trips are fantastic!
How is everyday life there?What are people's view on social issues?Really,anything you could tell us would be great
From what I see, life is quite similar yet quite different from ours, if you know what I mean. In the city, most of the teenagers I talked to had pretty similar routines to us but when we went to the countryside, they had completely different lifestyles. I think most people in Mongolia are 'content', for example we visited a family who lived in a slum district and what amazed me was their optimism for the future.
