Mongolian Yurt (“Ger”)

These nomadic circular homes known as yurts can be found in Mongolia and other Central Asian countries. In Mongolia, the “yurt” is called a “ger” and is a round tent supported by folding wooden walls and heavy felt outer coverings. The latticed walls support the long roof poles, which come together at the central ring.

Aren’t they the cosiest looking thing you’ve ever seen? They remind me of the womb.
