Note: Flag next to a link shows what language the website is in. This is sometimes obvious by what country the link is for or the fact that the title is in English. If I feel it may be ambiguous, I have tried to clarify by using a flag. This is done so that people can read sites in the language of their choice.

McGilp, H. International Deaf Children's Society - Helga McGilp. My journey to Mongolia started on the Trans-Siberian from St Petersburg to Ulaanbaater. One thing I regretted leaving behind were addresses of deaf schools. Of course no journey would be worthwhile or pose a challenge without experiencing some difficulties along the way!
