Weekend Spotlight

June 1, 2012

This weekend the spotlight is on Mongolia.  I chose Mongolia because I wanted to write about a lesser known Asian country and this seemed a good place to start.  Last summer in May 2011 I visited China and had the opportunity to go very close to Mongolia when we visited Dunhuang which is beginning point of the Gobi Desert that stretches thousands of miles into Mongolia.  We were told that it was possible to see Mongolia from the peaks of some of the sand dunes, but we never made it to the top to get this view unfortunately.

This weekend the spotlight is on Indonesia.

I wasn’t sure which country to choose next as the Weekend Spotlight so I asked my mom to name a country at random and she said Indonesia.
