Mongol Derby 2014

A visit to the Black market

At the meetup of riders on night 1, many of us decided we wanted to take a trip to the black market.  Sam Jones pretty much orchestrated the whole thing, and won points with us by having the bus system completely figured out… and a mass of giddy riders made their way to through UB transit.

We spent a few hours there, I paired off with Anita and we did the full tour but most of the stuff was knockoff stuff from China.  We later went for lunch and then to the State Department Store.  We also met up later with Bonnie and spent time running around getting all the forgotten “stuff” that was necessary for MD14.
