A wealthy widow, bandits, a king’s buried jewels, a missing map

I sit here writing in the midst of winter weather that seems positively Mongolian, though rather milder and damper (Ulaan Bataar is currently sunny, I believe, but overnight temperatures drop below -20).  This is apparently the UK's worst snowfall for 20 years and inevitably much of the country has ground to a halt. 

It's a little while since I provided any Mongolian snippets,  I should draw your attention to a piece that appeared on the BBC website over the weekend, exploring the growth of Christianity in the country.  Meanwhile, true to form, the UB Post provides a story that you just couldn't make up.
