Day at Bu Dongxia – reindeer herders’ camp

On Saturday, July 27, Congress delegates and observers visited the reindeer herding camp, Bu Dongxia, which is located about 20 miles northeast of Aoluguya. The main event of the day was the World Championship in Lassoing for Reindeer Herding, 2013. While all in good fun, the competition was fierce and very exciting to watch!  Since I am not a herder, I was not allowed to compete. I did, however, get some world class instruction from one of the finalists and, no doubt, I intend to continue honing my skills at home!
