In the Gobi Desert of Mongolia, where no roads lead, community is the key to a nomad’s life. The basic tenants of life: herding, eating and waiting are done together. Often times with a shot of vodka and a snort of snuff. At days end, fermented mare’s milk and large platters of horse meat finish the day.
