Ulaanbaatar May 22


Photo of paper mâché artist and some work.

Snow from last night could be seen on the hill surrounding Ulaanbaatar though very little had settled on the ground in the city. It felt very cold, reminded me of the arctic, temperature about 0 in the morning with a chill factor of -7. Exhilarating is one for it. The novelty wore off quickly and after a walk to some studios to meet some artist friends of Togsoo’s we returned to our apartment to spend the day organizing the show and writing. Mervyn finished stretching the canvases for the show. The state let the hot water run through the city pipes again today. The notice was that we would be another week without hot water. I wonder if the cold snap and the elections coming up soon inspired the hot taps to be turned on.
