Mongolian language is too hard to learn. Similar to Russian.
Mongolians are different. They have the Russian mindset and are more in common with them than other Asians.
I liked the vibe of Ulaanbaator. Not too big, not too small. The architecture is cool too. I can't wait to go back when this virus circus ends.
Maybe I can create a Salvadors type of restaurant there...and create a goulaanbaator website...lol
Tom, were you one of those regulars at Salvadors back in the summer of '10? I'm sure we crossed paths.
I was in Mongolia (only stayed in Ulaanbaator) from October through November. The weather was great, only snowed once. I hooked up with several girls. I was like a rock star there. Girls were giving me looks, making eye contact, etc. There weren't very many foreigners there so I stood out with my charming looks and personality...lol The girls in Kunming really missed out with me.
I liked it a lot better than China and will be going back once this pandemic circus ends. They don't censor the internet. I opened a bank account there and deposited a small amount of money due to their high interest earning accounts. Opened it a branch in 20 minutes. That would have never happened in China. Most young people are studying English verses Chinese or Russian. It is relatively cheap but I can see it turning expensive due to the influx of the oil, gas and mining industries.
I'll never forget the time I was in Salvadors posting on GoKunming about how most of the expats who went their were very snooty. I was literally sitting at the same table as them posting and they didn't know it was me. They all started talking about it and were getting upset. It was hilarious.
I decided to come back to this forum. My original forum name was gaoxing. Maybe some of you old timers remember.... I stayed in Kunming a couple of months back in the summer of 2010 and complained about it the whole time. I complained on this forum and at Salvador's Coffee House.
I originally came to Kunming to study Chinese and hook up with girls. I was thinking it was going to be like Thailand and full of Chinese girls busting down my door to date me. Quite frankly the place sucks for dating. I ended up getting fed up with the dating scene and the environment in general and went to Hong Kong. I loved it there and actually dated and fell in love with a beautiful Xiang Gang girl. In the end it didn't work out and I went back to the US. I have worked a government job for the past 10 years and have saved enough to do a lean retirement. I went on a trip to Mongolia last year and I really like Ulaanbaatar better than China...end of rant.
Anyway, it's nice to be back on this forum.
