A UTS student writes about his travels to Mongolia.

This past July, UTS student Karl Jones and his wife traveled to Mongolia for three weeks as part of his UTS independent study global justice course. Karl traveled amongst the people with a mind to learn about their history and the impact of international banking and corporations on the country today, particularly the impact on the poor. Inspired to share his experiences with friends, family, and other interested readers back home, Karl wrote a journal during his travels and started turning it into a blog this week.

You’re invited to read Karl’s blog and learn about his powerful experience. I’ve added his blog to our blogroll in the sidebar and don’t forget: subscribing to his blog via RSS feed is easy.

Update: Karl has lent us more context on his blog in this post’s comments section.
