Girls start training at a very early age to become Mongolian acrobats.
Spending the night in a Mongolian ger is exotic enough, but then when our hostess asked us if we would like a traditional throat singer and some young acrobats to come and entertain us, we were thrilled.
These little girls came in and with their shy little smiles began to go through their routine. It was impressive to see all the contortions they could do. They had only been in the training class less than a year, but they kept us entertained for at least a half hour.
