Caption: Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Large apartment blocks, dating from the Soviet era, contrast with the traditional nomad encampments in the foreground. Snow-clad mountain slopes are seen behind the apartment blocks. Each nomad encampment centres on a round tent-like structure called a ger. The gers lack indoor plumbing, but can be more comfortable than the city’s crowded apartments.
