My landlady just left. Almost every time I see her she has a different hairstyle. She has a twelve year old daughter whose English is very good. Her English was markedly better this time around; last time we met (always to pay up the electicity and such) she was still teaching beginners English to hers students. Whenever I go to the central post office to pay the bill the number is filed under her name. Dagvamaa, (which is pronounced Davagmaa, another Wonder of Mongolian Writing Vs Speech, of which there are many many) and I am used to the person looking up at me and saying it. It's always beastly hot in there. Soviet central heating.
