AROUND

WORLD

THE

t happened in Mongolia. Kristina Manente ’09

crashed — physically, emotionally. Tired and cold,

Manente got sick in the middle of the Mongol Rally,

a charity motor vehicle rally that stretches 10,000 miles

from London, England to Ulan Ude, Russia.

“It’s adventure travel at its most insane because they

give you a starting line, some parties along the way,

if you can find them, and a finish line. That’s it,” said

by Michael J. Soloway

Manente, who also noted that the terrain in

Mongolia was awful and the roads nonexistent.

Manente and her team kept getting lost and

spent hours going in the wrong direction. “We

had to really make our own roads,” she said. “It

was rough going and we had already lost a day

going the wrong way. We ended up getting

stuck in the sand.”
