Now I have had a lot of very creative business meetings in my life but this was held in the most exotic location. A dinner meeting inside a yurt in Inner Mongolia! The main course was goat! Yummy!
Great image. I love yurts.

Yeah, I can imagine! We are always warned about doing business in Eastern countries: there they want to know you first and you have to go through a whole series of social happenings before you can come to the point, in Western countries it's mostly the other way around. I like the Eastern way more. It's pure hospitality I think, because hospitality rules prescribe that you don't ask for a guest's reasons to visit you, before you have treated him with all kinds of delicacies and put him at ease. Well pictured, one sees oneself inside the exotic dwelling place.

Beautifully vivid and crisp. On first viewing It almost felt like the inside of a rather ornate dolls house. Simply superb

Wonderful!! The colour is spectacular. Business in a yurt, wow! I like the way you've focused on the food. Keep 'em coming Craig. These are treasures!

Nice picture Craig. I see that you had a lot of travel occasions in your life... I have never been in Mongolia, but as business meeting your story remembers me the tortoise and the snake that I had to eat in China... I had to keep the smile , not to offend my hosts. I succeeded. One of my personal victories in my life. I was not that good the following day for the boiled silk worms...

@Denis: I wasn't actually in Mongolia. I was in Inner Mongolia. It is a province of China just below the country of Mongolia. I can literally tell stories for hours of my epicurean adventures. Although I won't eat something just to please any longer. I used to do that. But, if it doesn't look appetizing to me I won't eat it. They tried to get me to eat goat face in the yurt but I wouldn't. I love South Korean BBQ. But, when they start throwing intestine and lower on the burner, I refuse. The Japanese eat more seafood then I am used to. I have a hard time with their sea snail. But, I've seen many guests have a hard time with a good old juicy steak! LOL It is all in what you are used to. I do love the people of the world and their cultures. No better way to experience a different culture than to share a meal. Thanks for your comments Denis!
amazing . it has so much life. the colors and lighting is great ! : )
