Mongolia | World’s Fourth Coolest Country

Yes, Mongolia is the Fourth Coolest Country In The World, exceeded in the hipness factor only by Jamaica, Singapore (?!?) and Brazil, apparently the coolest place in the world (blame it on the Bossa Nova).

 Enkha: “Hey, I’m Cool!”
What is supposed to be not so cool about Mongolia: “Yak-based dairy products … at every meal,” is surely an exaggeration. Yak-based dairy products are found only in certain areas of Mongolia. Gov-Altai Aimag does boast of vodka made from the milk of yaks, however.
Yak Milk Vodka made in the Town of Biger, in Gov-Altai Aimag. Cool, if you like vodka.

    She is cool.
    Mongolia is cool.
    You are cool.
    I am merely aheand of my time and on the cusp of cool.
