International Boxing Tournament in Mongolia
We went to see an international amateur boxing tournament in Mongolia today, featuring fighters from Mongolia, Inner Mongolia (China), and Buryatia (Russia). It was interesting to talk with the elderly pensioners sitting in front of us; they were very knowledgeable about all the fighters and who was favored to win. When the fights were not of interest to the gentlemen, they pulled newspapers out of the front "pockets" of their dels and started to read.
