Blog Post #4: Short Story

https://cedar.wwu.edu/easpress/11/      (Go to this website and then download the short story ¨Son of the Old World¨

This story is about a boy who goes north and basically creates the world.  He creates the sun, and the flowers. He creates the moon, and the stars.   He talks about how he feels like he missed his childhood, but all of this was so much greater.  I think the theme of this story is that happiness trumps all.  The beautiful earth he created is much better than the childhood he would have had.   Some of the cultural items mentioned in this story is the capital, and how he travels north to the mountains.  They also refer the child to god.

Blog post #3: News article

https://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/101east/2017/12/mongolia-eagle-hunters-171206083219329.html

In this news article, it talks about how the eagle hunting traditions are dying, and there is only about 60 left.  This tradition started dying down when the eagles also started dying down.  The contemporary issue is that the jobs in the city pay more for the men, and the job is left for young girls.  The problem with this is that it is not a job that young girls what to take on.

This is effecting their country because the tradition will be gone in about a generation.  This tradition has been around for many years.  With it disappearing,  it will take away part of their culture. This doesn’t necessarily effect us directly, but it will effect their country.  The eagles may also over populate because there wont be anyone hunting them.

Post #2: Background Information

Another major city in Mongolia is Orkhon.  This city has a significantly lower population than the capital.  The Orkhon river is located here.  The UNESCO World Heritage Center is also in Orkhon.  Mongolia’s main language spoken is Khalkhan Mongolian.  90% of the population speaks this language.
