(visited by Choijilsuren Damiran and Erdenee, tserensonom)

23-Jun-2006 -- 23rd June round 13 PM we went to Tsagaantsav (name of place) where we had work in company “Mongol tarvas” We came after 3 hours trip at round 16 o’clock. We met with Mr. Erdehee – chief of the company and work continued in the watermelon’s field. I should say that this is only place producing in Mongolian Gobi Watermelon for commercial purpose. Before 1980 used to for planting vegetables and fodder crop round 300 ha and know 5 ha. There is lot of underground water of course enough sunshine and windy in the spring. At the summer time there work sanatorium for kidney diseased people.

After field work we decided to go to the point. It is proximately 7 km north east from Company’s office. With us came Mr. Erdenee with his small daughter It was very easy point.
