the small anecdote about my glasses falling down in the outhouse at the summer camp? Well, this led to a new adventure of getting another pair of glasses. I really like the system here in Mongolia. It took only one day for them to make my lens and fit them on the frames. Although I mourn my smart-looking Ray Bans lost to crap (literally!), I must say I really like my new frames. How much did all this cost me? It cost about $60. Do you know how much it would have cost me in America? It would have cost at least $100 if not more. Although my eyes are so bad that they had originally said it would take two weeks for them to make it since they would have to send it to Korea, but I asked for a weaker prescription and received them only 6 hours later. I’m tempted tobuy some frames and just take them back with me since they are so cheap here. Anyone have any requests for frames?
I’ve never gone for the partial frame look before, but I’ve gotten used to it. These are similar to my last pair because they are both rectangular. However, these have a spice of red streaking down the ear piece. Am a serious and conservative person with black frames or a wild, fun girl with red frames?
Either way, my new frames go very well with the traditional Mongolian hat that they wear with their Del. I also like this pair because it has nose pieces, which help keep the glasses from moving on my flat, Asian nose.
