That is the most famous Mongolian out there.....Genghis Khan.

"For some unconventional statues, sheer size is what sets it apart. And size was clearly the point of the 131-foot-tall, 250-ton Genghis Khan statue unveiled in 2008 in the remote Mongolian steppe. The stainless steel giant—an epic symbol of the rapidly growing Mongolian nationalist movement—is visible from miles away."

Wow, when is your next ride?
I am planning one big ride in 4 to 5 years, looking for a riding partner.

I started from the west coast of Estonia and the destination was city of Vanino on the east coast Russia.

Form and courage

You have a good eye for form and structure. I am enjoying your pictures and admire your courage to go alone to such remoteness.
Thank you for sharing .
