Anyway, this morning, as I was getting ready for work it suddenly went quiet. Quiet where we live is unheard of so I looked out our "window with a view" and noticed no traffic. Looking further I noticed the policemen again lining the streets and the traffic way down the road stopped. Because we live close to Chingas Khan Hotel I figured out it must be the VP coming down our street. So I ran to grab my camera because I thought - this will be a great picture! Before I could get the camera in place they were already coming. 4 police cars, about 5 black cars, and 3-4 RV's which looked more like mini-buses. Below you can see some of my very uninteresting pictures!

|Your guess is as good as mine!|
|Is it this one?|
|Not this one|
|Here is the surveillance van|
|Here come the entourage of people which follow the VP|
|Lastly, the lone policeman pulling up the rear!|
About 5 minutes later another entourage of cars came down the road again with a police escort. The only difference was that they didn't stop traffic. So who were they? The press? Or maybe it was the real VP in a plot to fool the terrorists!
So what was he doing here anyway? Apparently, "Mongolia wants to develop its mineral wealth but needs outside help, with firms from neighbors China and Russia, as well as from the U.S., Australia, Japan and Canada looking to develop projects. Last month it picked U.S. mining giant Peabody Energy, China's Shenhua Group and a Russian-Mongolian consortium to jointly develop the Tavan Tolgoi coking coal deposit in the Gobi Desert." "There have been reports of secret discussions between the Mongolian, Japanese and U.S. governments on storing nuclear waste in Mongolia, but the country’s government has denied this."
