CONGRATULATIONS - ABIGAYLE GOODWIN TRAVELS TO MONGOLIA
Abigayle shares her summer experience oversees as a recipient of a Global Scholarship through the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh. #RangerPride For more information about the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, go to: https://www.worldpittsburgh.org/about-us/.
This past summer, I traveled to Mongolia on a Global Scholarship. I was nervous to go, but it ended up being more than I could’ve imagined - in a good way! I met so many friends there, amongst my own tour group and the Mongolian locals. We traveled the countryside to various locations. My favorite was this little town by Lake Khuvsgul where we stayed in a school dorm. We did hikes most mornings, when we watched the sun rise over the lake. We also did community service for the local school, which is when we became friends with local students. The Mongolian community is extremely friendly, and they love to play card games.
Another major aspect of this trip was the homestay. For one week, I lived with a Mongolian family in a humble ger. The ger is a circular tent-like structure that the herder families call home. Staying with a family that does not speak any English is intimidating, but it was one of the most rewarding experiences. The language barrier is hard to overcome, but there are ways to bond with people beyond spoken words. They taught me new card games, cooked meals for me, and even took me out to collect cow dung for the fire. My family was so kind, and that made the homestay a fulfilling week.
I learned a lot on this trip, which I did not quite expect. Living in another country with complete strangers is uncomfortable at first, but leads to breaking your own personal barriers. Now I can say I went to Mongolia and did things I would’ve never done here. I made dumplings with locals, visited holy lands, and did yoga on a mountain top. I jumped in a river fully clothed, picked up cow droppings with my bare hands, and successfully survived without running water. The best part of all of it is is that I loved every second of it.
