February 3, 2016 - "Celebrating the New Year while enjoying a blend of East and West”

Finland offers a unique blend of East and West and “yin-and-yang elements” found nowhere else on earth according to National Geographic Traveler. During the event, we learned more about a destination further east, Mongolia. Ariun Sanjaajamts talked about the destination, Its history, traditions and also about the important role of women in Mongolia.

After the Annual Meeting and the presentation there was a lively Q & A session and then  networking and Himalayan Happy Hour at Café Serai with musical entertainment and also an opportunity to visit the India, Buddhist Shrine Room and the Power of masks exhibits.
Some trivia: The Finnish and Mongolian languages can trace back its origins to similar roots. Marshal Mannerheim, a military leader and President of Finland and one of the greatest Finns of all times, visited Mongolia in 1908 during his two-year long trip along the Silk Road.
