28-Jun-2011 -- Today is 28 June, 2011 and 21st day of our travel. 3 weeks have passed since we left Ulaanbaatar and embarked on a mission to install alarm systems in branches of the Saving Bank in eastern aimags.

Our work has been successful thus far and we have only 2 days left. There were 3 latitude, longitude confluence points along our route. The 3rd point was located about 40km away from the center of Undurshil soum, Dundgobi aimag. Its coordinates are E108, N045. That day the weather was warm, calm and no rains, so we set out to locate this point from Mandakh soum of Dornogobi aimag to Undurshil soum. As we got closer to the confluence point, we set off on a path where there were no roads. Since there were no high hills on our path and no recent rains, we have travelled our path with no difficulties. Discounting few bushes, our path was smooth.

Once we reached the point using GPS, the time was 19:40. We took some photographs and despite a strong wind, we easily managed to set our flags in the place by using our vehicle as cover against the wind. The flags were of Tergel Tech LLC, the Savings Bank and of Mongolia.

Our team consisted of A.Gankhuyag director of Tergel Tech LLC and engineer Batbileg.
