Transcript of Mongolia

1. "You are from Mongolia? I know Genghis Khan!"
"Genkhis Khan is the pride of Mongolia"
2. "Mongolia? It is the country of grassy plains! "
4. "Is there a city in Mongolia?"
Ulaan Baatar (literally "Red Hero") is the capital and the largest city of Mongolia. An independent municipality, the city is not part of any province, and its population as of 2008 is over one million.
5. "Do Mongolians use Chinese Hanja?"
6. "What is your eyesight?"
"There's an urban legend (IMHO) in Korea about Mongolians having 100/20 vision. There's even been a report that a fisherman in Sicily is the current Guinness World Record holder for best eyesight, with 120/20 vision."
7. "How is Mongolian food?"
The Mongolian cuisine is overall characterized by simplicity. This fact was determined by the low number of the ingredients that are used when preparing Mongolian dishes. Also, the small variety of the ingredients is a consequence of the climatic conditions of the country. Because of the hard and long winters, Mongolians cannot crop many vegetables and their meals are mostly based on meats - mutton, marmot and horsemeat predominate.
