Mongolian Mafia Story

Lief told us this story while we were on the train from Chengdu that I thought was pretty funny–since it didn’t happen to us.

He said that about 15 years ago he decided to go from Beijing to Moscow on the Trans-Siberian Express. The trip went through Mongolia and he and a number of other people were told that there was a food shortage in Mongolia and that they all needed to bring food for a week with them.

So, they all stocked up on food and stored it under their chairs and above their seats. They arrive in Mongolia and a person tells them to put all the food on a truck and then get into the bus next to it. Everyone followed instructions.

Then the bus went one way and the truck went the other way and they never saw the food again. They ate mutton for that week.

I liked that trick a lot. ūüėČ

  2. That’s not trick my firend! At that time Mongolia was a country suffered from collapse of Soclialism. If you were born in Mongolia, you don’t have chance to avoid your such fate. You must be glad god bless you. Human, we can’t live in just only our choice. So don’t bring somebody into derision like this. Your joke makes an ass of yourself. I just know that the Mongolians’ll never make a mock of you, if you have unpleasant case in your life. Cause they have at least morality! My friend, you should broaden your worm point of view.
