Can anyone help identify this hospital in Mongolia?

This hospital was/is apparently a maternity and pediatric hospital. I've Googled this repeatedly without success. The pictures were taken in 2010, so I'm unsure if the hospital building is still standing or if a newer hospital has been built in its place. [more inside]

Your Mongolian Horse Treks. Tell me about them.

We came across this trek on national geographic. We are very interested in doing something similar (the natgeo trip seems expensive) but have no idea of how to start planning or what to expect. Mefites that have vacationed in Mongolia and gone on these treks, please give me your recommendations! [more inside]

China is really big! Where do I go?

After many other ideas have fallen through, I think I'll be going to China about 7 days in May. But it's so big! Inner Mongolia sounds cool; is it worth traveling around Hohhot? I could go surfing in Hainan, but how is the beach compared to Ha Long Bay, or Copacabana, or Playas del Este...? [more inside]

Mongol Nazis?!

A friend of mine has just returned from Mongolia and was describing roving mad-max style gangs of men using Nazi symbols, with apparently limited understanding of their meaning in the west. Where can I read more about Mongolian Nazis? Is this really prevalent? How did they come to hear about Nazis in the first place? Do they get along with western neo-nazis (despite being ethnically Mongolian)? [more inside]

Advice for westbound trans-siberian trip (from Beijing) in April/ May?

I am trying to plan a 4 week trip back westbound on the Trans Siberian railway. I'm planning to travel through China via Shanghai from Osaka and then take the trans Siberian from Beijing. I'd love some advice on where I should stop over (I'm thinking maybe Mongolia, Irkutsk, Moscow and a stop in Eastern Europe) and what I should try and see and do in these places on my way back to London. Also, I'm on a budget of about $2000 is this enough?. I am arranging it all myself so any general advice/ experience would be very much appreciated.
