Dear Mr. Editor,

For the “Room with a View” section of your magazine Condé Nast Traveler, I submit my photographs from the Three Camel Lodge in the Gobi, Mongolia.  My room was the Rabbit Ger -- the deluxe gers have names.

The Rabbit Ger is not a primitive, nomadic tent in the middle of a bleak and unforgiving desert. The ger is a round and thoroughly insulated, colorful abode with ample headroom.  

The Ger is a first-class accommodation with a king-size bed, desk and chairs, and a private bathroom with a sink and modern toilet.  Solar power provides lights and hot water.  The public shower room is clean and modern.  There’s plenty of hot water.  (A sign in the stall reads, “A short shower is as refreshing as a long one.”) 

Just across the threshold of my ger is the Gobi.
