Andrewtdc, as someone that is moving to Mongolia, thought you might be interested in the video.

Cool post lessismore, have you ever been to Mongolia?

Very cool video. I've forwarded it to a bunch of Mongolian friends. And While I've not yet ridden a yak, I've been promised I'll get to ride a reindeer on my next visit.

I've never thought of pavement as orgasmic but I suppose there are a number of things that I take for granted. I realize you'll be in the city but still, you'll have to report back your findings. What's different etc.

Also, should you graduate from reindeer to yak, lessismore is our resident expert on such things.

I had the good fortune of riding on the yak when I was in Lijiang (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lijiang,_Yunnan) some years. It is a really incredible place. If you ever get a chance to visit, I highly recommend it.

No I have not. Although, I have ridden on a yak. That should count for something. :)

Absolutely, you're practically mongolian at that point.
