Simply the Best: January 2015

Happy New Year! Thanks to the Simply the Best series I know what I’ve done since March 2014 when the point of my life started.

Here’s what was big this January:

Over the past few days I’ve come across this prototypical or atypical Euro traveler (depending on which side of the aisle you are on) who goes out his way to be gracious to the local populace, overuses the word ‘amazing’ in any description, and fails to recognize the reality of the country he is visiting.

2. The Press in Mandalay

The press in Ulaanbaatar is depressing. Once a mighty empire, the land of Genghis Khaan has become a wasteland in all senses of the word.
