Just as the interior of the ger was always set up according to certain conventions, the process of visiting a ger involved a certain amount of tradition and ceremony that continues to this day. And most travelers I know go to the ATM even more than twice a week, which only increases the amount in fees they pay. I’m the best gardener I know. On the East Coast, a Harvard student named Bill Coperthwaite was inspired by photos of gers in National Geographic and used his dissertation as an opportunity to build the structures. It’s also possible to build your own yurt if you possess carpentry and sewing skills; a simple Internet search brings up many instructional guides. The yurt has a proven record of withstanding the elements; just in Mongolia, it has endured rain, snow, wind and extreme heat. In a yurt, you can enjoy the sounds of the rain and the wind but stay safe and dry.

Lohse, Deborah. “Come to the parks for the redwoods, stay in the…yurts?” The Argus. The trend started in Oregon, when parks manager Craig Tutor saw yurts displayed at the Oregon State Fair and bought them for state parks. What started as a tomb has since served as a prison, home and museum. ­Since 1802, the Rosetta Stone has occupied a space in London’s British Museum. Maman has received a permanent home outside of the museum. Grossman, Lev. “Home is Where the Yurt Is.” Time. Kuehn, Dan Frank. “Mongolian Cloud Houses: How to Make a Yurt and Live Comfortably.” Shelter Publications. Wolfe, Claire. “Yurt magic…building an enchanting instant house.” Backwoods Home Magazine. Yurts don’t always turn a major profit, but park officials report that they do get more people interested in camping. Tedeschi, Bob. “Finding Loans for Yurts or Prefabs.” New York Times. While yurts may start at about $4,000 from most manufacturers, the sky’s the limit in terms of what may be the final cost, as users install gutter systems, electricity, plumbing, French doors and ceiling fans.

Humankind has come a long way in transportation since Christopher Columbus sailed to the new world from Spain in 1492, an expedition which took over 10 weeks to arrive at the final destination; to the 21st century when aircraft allows travel from Spain to the United States overnight. Thus British writing has repel, repelled, repelling (as would American writing, since the final syllable is stressed). If you like animals and nature, you can take in an African safari, commune with monkeys in Costa Rica or get chased by a surly kangaroo in Australia. Take this quiz and test your knowledge of the shifting sands that formed these words! Instead, dictionaries and grammarians track the logic that holds a language together and the many meanings that words accrue as they pass through time. The study of the origins of words, known as etymology, attempts to follow how words come into being and how the friction of historical events shapes their meaning. “Innocent,” which usually means the state of being without guilt, is composed of the prefix in – not and the root nocent, from nocentum – harm.

So, the original word has more to do with a state of not having done harm rather than being guilt-free in any legal sense. Since the 16th century, though, the meaning of happy elation has attached to the word. How can that be, though, if “year 1” on the Gregorian calendar was based on the year that Jesus was born? Since the structure is not much taller than 6 feet (almost 2 meters), it can be placed within some tall shrubs or trees for privacy. My God, with so much preparations and the trip and everything, I forget I will want to die up there, that I will say a thousand times, what a mess I got into! The things that interest and attract you in one are very much the same in the other. There are also other items for children such as slides, mirror mazes fun houses, and variations on the bouncy castle. Construction began on the Buda Castle in the 13th century, and it’s still not finished. That changed in 1886 when cattle drives from Texas began to expand north to Wyoming.
