The host family at our lunch in Nalaikh. Nalaikh is the sight of Mongolia's first coal mine. The mines were formally closed, but informal miners continue to mine for coal in very dangerouse circumstances. A fatal methane gas explosion in 1990 that killed 21 forced the government to shut down the mine.
