@jegga Yeah - currently riding a shitty little chinese 150cc motorbike around Mongolia.
Last week, I lucked out with a hotel room where I got Setanta.
This week - deliberately made today's ride a short one, checked into the most "classy" (relatively, for Mongolia) looking hotel in town... no Setanta.
That sounds very cool .
My brother in law used to like it there, there’s a species of trout that grows to four feet long he used to fly fish for.
He reckoned the alcohol consumption amongst the locals was on a par with Russians too .
It's kinda a "stop-gap" between two other trips - the London-Beijing I bragged about in the de-facto Motorbike thread (and need to write a more recent write-up on, probably starting an actual biker thread), and I'm about to head to North Korea after this. Won't be posting from there, I suspect, sorry @Victor-Meldrew .
But yeah - I've met a few people here for the fishing, and seen a few fly-fishers about.
The alcohol consumption - it's weird, it seems like drinking vodka and airag used to be a standard thing for any semi-social occasion... but nowadays, there's heaps of guys drinking beer in the afternoon/evening - not handling it well... and maybe a bit of a backlash from the non-drunkards.
