- Khasnan is a civil servant in the city of Khovd, a major town in the western Mongolia. He is in charge of keeping track of rabies in the district. The disease is spreading dangerously mostly because of three main animal groups: dogs, marmots and eagles. The trouble for Khasnan is that he is very fond of eagles. He has already trained six of them for hunting. We follow them for a day or two. Eastern Mongolia shelters a majority of Muslim believers. Mosques and Islamic schools can be found everywhere. Traditional weddings too. The Khazakhs of Mongolia are always aware that their homeland is only a few miles away. Khazakhstan is as much a state of mind as a reality. But Khazakhstan is in constant political turmoil compared with Mongolia. So what should be done? Should they cross the border or stay in Mongolia?
