The wonder of a yurt

I saw this video on BoingBoing and I just had to share! The Oathbreaker’s Shadow is very much inspired by Mongolian culture, and several key scenes take place in a yurt. This is a very modern yurt (I don’t think my characters would have a polyethylene sheet to waterproof the inside of their homes), but it’s still a fascinating demonstration of an ancient tradition living on. I haven’t yet had the pleasure of visiting Mongolia, but when I do, I’m dying to spend a night or two in one of these.
