Mongolia – digging temples and skateparcs
it has been 14 years….digging in mongolia
And then you scroll trough your old files and find these bw scans, smile and remember. It was digging at Karakorum with the DAI, eating bots every day and finding natural herbs in the mountains, horseriding and dog playing, vast plains and acient remains.
It was the time when to discover the great abondened skatepark in Ulan Bator/mongolia that led us to the 14 skater project “in search for the history of the mongolian skateparc” in 2004, ending up with the book dirt ollies and the film mongolian tyres .
Thanks to Juliane Schmidt for showing me the parc first time and to Prof. Dr. Hajo Huettel for accepting my participation with the Kaak/DAI project in Karakorum. Thanks to all the excavation team!
