Info

In late September, a family assembles a ger (round tent built from canvas, strong poles, and wool felt) in a squatter settlement on the hillsides of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. They have been herding animals in the countryside for the summer and are now moving back into the city for the winter. Despite the popular image of Mongolians as nomadic herders, it is an increasingly urbanized country. More than one quarter of Mongolians live in the capital city, Ulaanbaatar.
