Hostel in Ulan Ude
The hostel I ended up at was very close to the downtown center. The town is very Mongolian. The people are actually called Buryat. I got to watch a Buryat dance and music show at the town center. The sounds were reminiscent of the shouting sounds the village women make during our Kujawiaki shows. The music was enticing as the people began dancing in the streets. The swwuare also has a fountain that moves in turn to the music that is played. Altogether a very interesting town.
Afterwards I went to a Buryat restaurant called the Nomads. I did not order their specialty of heart, tongue, liver and tripe. I already done that once this trip. Later on I would try the Buryat dumplings which probably have that along with pork and lamb.
