The inside of a nomadic family's home.
When you enter a ger, the host family greets you with handshakes, hot milk and crackers. They size you up while you sit crosslegged on their floor. Some hosts are curious to know about your life and you can ask them questions about theirs.
They don't have much. Typically, the ger houses two beds, a wood stove for cooking, a religious alter and/or a television (with satellite tv!), a couple of shelves and a (sometimes) a small table. The walls and floors are padded with carpets for insulation and comfort.
"That is the magic of travel. You leave your home secure in your own knowledge and identity. But as you travel, the world in all its richness intervenes. You meet people you could not invent; you see scenes you could not imagine. Your own world, which was so large as to consume your whole life, becomes smaller and smaller until it's only one tiny dot in time and space. You return a different person. ❤️ - Kent Nerburn
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”
Then wear the gold hat, if that will move her;
If you can bounce high, bounce for her too,
Till she cry "Lover, gold-hatted, high bouncing lover, i must have you."
- the great gatsby, F. Scoot Fitzgerald
