Recycling... the Mongolian way

I got my legs waxed this afternoon. It was quite the experience. Instead of using fabric strips, as is generally the case in other waxing salons, the waxer used strips of paper torn from magazines to rip my hair out. It took a good couple of hours and hurt a heck of a lot. If this is standard waxing practice in Mongolia, I doubt many women utter the words 'one Brazilian please'.

On a more positive note, I also got a manicure for $5 and made a friend who was getting a facial while my legs were brought up to speed with the latest gossip straight from the pages of the local rags.

Perhaps Mongolia is really ahead of the times when it comes to recycling?
