Images Mongolia 2003 (I)

In summer 2003, Dr. Sabrina Rilke and Sebastian Schmidt led a four weeks students excursion in Mongolia. Starting from Ulaanbaatar, they explored the country westwars towards Khovd/Great Lake Basin. On their way back, they touched the north of the Gobi and returned to the mongolian capital after exciting weeks with lots of plant material and also new ideas in mind.
