We had lunch with Ursie's friends and colleagues from her school,
International School #19. In the group shot in front of the cafe are:
- Top row left to right:
Dana, Mike, Frank, Delger (head of school), Bob (fellow teacher)
- Middle row left to right:
Batsukh (friend who runs the cafe), Ganzul (fellow teacher), Ursie,
Chamia (U's Mongolian tutor)
- Front row left to right:
Nara (teacher), Fran, another Nara (teacher), Chamia's little boy,
Munkhtuyaa (Amartuvshin's wife), and
Amartuvshin (assistant head of school, hired Ursie, Delger's son)
After this picture was taken, we all went shopping for locally made
sheepskin coats and then toured the school, which can be seen from the
window of Ursie's apartment.
We had dinner with Norwegian friends Aase (sitting next to Ursie),
a newly arrived young man, and Elin (next to Fran).
On the 17th we left for Ulaan Baatar.
