Well the new volunteers are here and in numbers, 65 of them in the new group. I was reading our blogs from this time last year and we said that we were about 50% sure that we made the right decision, we are still debating. Anywho, its crazy how fast perceptions change over the course of a year. I remember when we drove into Darkhan last year for the first time and thinking that this must be a joke, now they are going to take us to the real city, not the place that was used for nuclear weapons testing. Now however we look at Darkhan like a culinary paradise where we can make anything happen. I wish I could articulate this better but it is something that has to be experienced. Or as Fahd says "I would color it with detail but everything is just different shades of brown."
