Darhan is full of surprises.  Just when you think you have seen all there is to see something new pops up.   Last week Brent and I were asked to accompany some people from church to visit an orphan home in New Darhan.  I was asked to bring the camera to take some pictures.  We were not sure exactly what to expect (that’s a given- you stay flexible) or who would be going.   I was thinking three or four people — as it turns out you can fit 12 people in a Toyota Land Cruiser.

Note the circus poster in the background

It turned out that our destination was a circus school run for kids who are homeless, or don’t have a safe home environment.  The school has been open for about a year.  Many of the students will go home with the teachers because they have no other place to go at night.

This sign says Darhan-Uul Aimag Scouting Counsel – the symbol looks like the Boy Scouts symbol.
