    I suppose that we're in the boondocks in the same sense that Las Vegas is.

    AFAIK, Lufthansa (This is a thread about Lufthansa.) doesn't fly here.

    China Southern serves the airport. There is also a high speed train to Hohhot and I assume Beijing.

    You certainly live in an interesting part of China. Do you have quite a few Russians up there?

    I haven't noticed any. But, we're closer to Beijing than we are to most other cities in Neimenggu.

    The Russian frontier is far away from us. Mongolia is a different matter. One student posted some photos of a restaurant near the border. The menu was in Cyrillic, not Chinese or traditional Mongolian.

    The Mongolian population might be less than half what is normally required for an autonomous region. Signs are in traditional Mongolian and Chinese, though.

    A Mongolian I met many years ago said she had to learn Russian in school. I think it might have been the language of instruction too. Might explain the Cyrillic. Not sure about now though.

    I believe that Stalin ordered the change. Mongolia uses Cyrillic today.
