Photographer's Note

Mongol Kids: From a very early age, kids were taught to respect their parents. They were taught survival skills - how to collect dry animal dung for firewood, how to milk cattle, how to use a bow and arrow, and how to cook and sew.
If you visit nomads on your trip, it's considered polite to bring gifts for their children.
Mongolian children like the same things as kids around the world. But avoid gifts which require batteries or refills—they won't be able to buy them.
You can gift babies and young children a soft toy; for older children small action figures, toy cars, notebooks, color pencils (make sure you include a pencil sharpener) and so on.
A gift I have given that was well received was a wind up torch—a very useful and practical gift for nomads.
