Out in Mongolia


Everything happens with a quiet solemnity, a quiet certitude, an unexplainable and seamless change from one day to the next. No-one asks, no-one issues orders, life is done, life follows exactly the hours of the day and the days of the season. Life is immediate, shifting between shoeing a horse, to killing a sheep. There's no ceremony, no posturing. They move with the sense of knowing, an understanding of the world they live in and their inscrutable faces bonded to a warming smile brutally hardened by an existence which is just short of survival. They are worldly and this is their world.
