And Leena built me a yurt! She made the walls out of the red bricks, the central pole out of our carpet sweeper, and the canopy out of a sheet.
It was big enough for several small people to play inside.Just like in a real ger, sunlight filtered in through the canopy, so it was fairly bright inside.
We also watched this great video of a real ger (yurt) going up. They call it an instant house, and, I have to admit, it's more like a house than a tent.
