These are my first postcards from Mongolia. You can see the typical steppes and traditional housing, called yurt in English, but "ger" in Mongolian. To enable nomads to follow their herds to different grazing grounds, these tent-like buildings can be disassembled and reconstructed easily.

The stamp shows a drop of water. I could link the wiki article but I you've probably heard of it before.
