Thursday/ inner and outer Mongolia

The wind howled around the corners of the apartment building all last night, setting off car alarms (but there were no barking dogs, the way there is sometimes!).    Looking at Hong Kong observatory’s map, it’s a north wind which makes sense because it’s cold and the temperature here dropped to 7 º C (44 º F).   It has already snowed in Shanghai – early for this year, and since Beijing is further up north I’m sure they have had lots of snow already (not to mention many places in the USA!).    Our newest PwC colleague that joined the project is from Mongolia and at Tue’s team dinner he explained to us the difference between inner Mongolia and outer Mongolia.   Ready?  Inner Mongolia is an autonomous region inside China, and outer Mongolia is today its own country Mongolia, just to the north of inner Mongolia.
