Rashit's wife outside their yurt. They move roughly every 6 to 8 weeks. Why do you move I asked Rashit, "Because I am a nomad," he replied.

Rashit in his yurt. He spoke several languages and was always trying to learn more. When he found I spoke Spanish he spent hours learning new phrases from me and steering clear of smalltalk. "No talk, we learn. Word for horse."

His dream was to visit Mecca.
