The BBC prompted me to write about 2 things:
1. Asashoruyu (aka Dagvagdorj)/Sumo
2. The HUGE baby born in the Altai region in Russia.
About sumo...it's huge here. I was over at the Japanese-Mongolian center (funded by the Japanese government) and people were sitting around watching sumo, talking about sumo and eating cymo (Sumo cookies)! Mongolians love wrestling, and when one of their own, Dagvadorj, is on top, they love it even more. Beating the Japanese at their own game! But Dagvadorj has proven to be quite a handful for Japanese Sumo. They've dubbed him the "bad boy" of Sumo. It's all over the Mongolian and Japanese news. Everyone watches his every move.

What are they feeding the women in the Altai region? This lady had a 17.5lb (7.75kg) baby. Those are some kind of potatoes, noodles, and tomatoes! Here is the link
