The great warrior Genghis Khan was a Mongol and nearly conquered the world. Today, Mongolians could not be friendlier and more hospitable. Accomplished equestrians, they are a nomadic breed who move their gers and families by Mongolian pony power. Even more exotic are the Tsaatan people who can be found galloping reindeer under the ice blue Mongolian sky. Reindeer cheese and vodka anyone?
