Mongolian Wrestler

Just before we left our host family in Mongolia, we all got dressed up in the traditional Mongolian dress of a Khovontei Dööl, a heavy felt coat. A sash was tied around our middle and we all had our photo taken. Very touristy. The husband of the family we stayed with decided that he would have a Mongolian style wrestle with me, maybe he thought I had been hanging out with his wife too much. Anyway the above pic is taken at that moment.

I should also state that the wrestle was a draw and neither of us managed to get the other on their back. Which I thought was a good effort on my behalf as the day before the husband had been involved in a local wrestling competition.
