Reflections on the Naadam Festival by Nathalie

The festival was so beautiful. All of the girls were wearing their traditional deels and the guys were wearing their shirts. It was so amazing to see a part of the Mongolian culture that has been a part of their life for years. I wonder what it would be like for international students to go to America and be a part of one of our traditions. It probably feels the same way. I have such a new perspective on traditions and international customs. I can’t wait to experience something new during the rest of our stay here.- Nathalie
