After deciding to leave Chile, it’s time to go to Mongolia!
First of all, I was going to go directly from Chile to Mongolia, but given that the destination is the other side of the planet, I made a decision to go to Japan first to prepare my self. Even Chingis Khaan managed to expand his empire with a lot of preparation (I think).
Before leaving Chile, I tried to meet as many close people as possible to eat out. At that time, I didn’t know that Chilean ingredients such as avocado (“Palta” in Chile), seafood and wine were that valuable, as I took them for granted. Especially since I was born and raised in Japan, I was used to seafood (for the next 3 years I really appreciated every opportunity to have sea food as Mongolia is landlocked country).
After all, we can appreciate the value of something when we lose it, be it health, salmon or Palta.
So I will briefly write about the path to arrive Mongolia.
Since I came to Mongolia, I haven’t written about the subject I am working on: Mongolian education. The other day, I attended one event where I reflected the past, present and future of education in this country.
It’s been a while since I had a personal trip last time without thinking about work at all, which taught me many things!
For 10 days, I had a family trip to China and Thailand. In this article, I would like to write about some general trip advice, recommended places, how to get there and how much as well as what lessons I learned.
