Red Corner: Hosting Mongolians

Ever wanted to meet a real live Mongolian and even perhaps invite him or her home for a few days? Well, if you live near Telluride, Colorado, now’s your chance.

In celebration of this year’s Mountainfilm Festival, 70 Mongolians are traveling half way around the world to attend the event. Why, you ask? Denver’s sister city is none other than Ulaan Baatar, the capital of Mongolia.

Although Mongolians are some of this world’s last great nomads, their traditional yurts will not fit in the overhead bin so they are looking for housing while attending the film festival. Locals who volunteer their homes, will get a pass to the festival for every Mongolian they put up.

The event is next weekend, May 26-29, so if you are interested, click here ASAP for more details.
