Mongolia: Inner vs Outer

Would like to go to either or maybe both but the main goal is learning Mongolian and more specifically the traditional script. Which do you recommend? (or both?)

Re: Pakistan visa in HK (outside USA)

Ok, they won't let me get the visa here. Has to be via the embassy in the USA. Sending your passport to the us and applying through a visa agency is the best way to go. People do this kind of stuff frequently. Is there a recommended agency we should use? (processing times?) I've pretty much decided ...

Re: Change in Iran travel situation for British passports

Not sure if I should start a new thread but, for Americans, is there any new information regarding the HHH article posted by d00gal? I can speak Farsi a bit and would also like to visit there alone. I have about three weeks to get the authorization number and visa if this is going to happen. Well, u...

Hmm, this is risky. If something/anything happens to my passport, I'm screwed. But at least, I know about this now while I will still be in one place for 3 weeks. I wonder would any old passport suffice...?

I am not able to go to the Pakistan Embassy in DC. Ar...
