And just like that, the Mongol Rally is over. After:
16,832 KM (10,520 miles)
16 countries and 18 border crossings
16 intolerable one-hour song marathons
5 bottles of home-made wine and alcohol
3 adorable hitchhikers (sorry Bridge, you don't count)
3 damaged shock absorbers
2 seas (one alive, one dead)
1 drunk Mongolian mechanic singing Backstreet Boys
1 replaced alternator
1 replaced fan belts
1 bad haircut
0 bribes paid and
0 flat tires
We finally did it -- and with your support we raised $4331 for the YP Foundation, Cruz Roja Ecuatoriana, and Cool Earth.
Thanks so much for your GENEROUS donations. We are thankful and can't wait to see you all sometime soon!!!
