🇲🇳 Naadam Festival (Mongolian Games Festival) 🇲🇳

Today is Mongolia’s national day, which falls during the Naadam Festival!

Naadam translates to “games”, and is a festival centered around three traditional Mongolian sports; archery, wrestling, and horse racing.

Mongolia’s Independence Day is December 29, 1911, but Naadam wins out in importance.                    So I’ve made the Mongolian national dish: Buuz (a meat filled steamed dumpling). 

Then I have some Mongolian milk tea, perfect for watching some Mongolian sport!
