What I see out my window – Mongol Rally

August 7, 2011 4 Comments »


I spend a lot of time looking out the window of our little Hot Box.  Even though we don’t have time to really stop and experience the countries we are racing through, we can see a lot of the countryside that many tourists never see.  I think the weirdest thing is to realize that we are moving ahead in time every day, adding hours as we pass through time zones, yet we are actually moving back in time when it comes to what I see out my window.

The living conditions seem to get more hearty, and you see many more people sitting by the side of the road selling vegetables and seasonal fruit.  We moved from European cars to horse carts.  And each town seems to get boxier in architecture and a bit more run down. We travel in comparatives as it gets hotter every day, the roads get worse, and gas gets cheaper.  Plus – the toilet conditions deteriorate slowly with every stop we make.

It’s weird to travel this way, to move backward and forwards in time.  So much to take in and no real time to process it.


How to donate to our charity – the Christina Nobel Foundation – we are still collecting donations along the way!
