Unexpectedly Intriguing!
February 18, 2010

Spam Alert! You know, we just don't receive the same high quality spam that we used to get.

The reason why that's the case today likely goes to the dismantling of McColo's spam servers back in late 2008, which sharply reduced the quantity of spam being disseminated on the Internet, especially in the United States.

And with the reduced quantity of spam, we've seen a corresponding decline in the quality of spam! These days, our spam filter largely fills up with solicitations for discount Viagra, which in the absence of evidence to the contrary, we'll assume is the most profitable form of spam these days.

But today was different, because we found a great offer to rent an apartment in Ulan Bator, Mongolia!

Or as our spammer, Ulana of MongolianRealEstate.com, might spell it, Ulaanbaatar. Going from their web site, we find that the fine folks at Mongolian Real Estate dot Com understand the kinds of problems we have in finding a place to hang our hats in Mongolia:

Finding a place in Ulaanbaatar can be a challenge. MongolianRealEstate.com has the kind of expertise in real estate acquisition that is only gained from experience.

Well, that's exactly the kind of experience-based expertise we can use! Let's see just what deals they e-mailed us about!

Fully Furnished Apartment For Rent in Ulaanbaatar
3 Bedrooms, Study, 2 Bathrooms, 2nd floor, 200 m2, Garage, Located Near Millie's Espresso
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 3rd floor, 130m2, Garage, Located Near Grand Khaan Irish Pub
3 Bedroom, Study, 2nd floor, 240 m2, Located in Royal Casttle, Near Chingis Khaan Hotel
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 3rd floor, 86 m2, Behind The State Department Store, $500/mo
2 Bedrooms, Study, 2 Bathrooms, 3rd floor, 100 m2, Located Next to Russian Embassy
1 Bedroom, 9th floor, 40 m2, Next to Grand Khaan Iris Pub, $350/mo
Office for Rent in "Monnis Tower" , 7th floor, 150 m2
Office for Rent in "Grand Office Building" , 4th floor, 120 m2
Etc., Etcetera.
Contact Ulana at (976-11) 310445 or (976) 99142710

So many great locations to choose from! But how to decide? We're tempted get the 2-bedroom near the Grand Khaan Irish Pub, but we're concerned that might put us too far away from The State Department Store. Then again, how could we turn down the 2-bedroom next to the Russian embassy? Sure, it's a bit small at just 100 m2, but the much larger 3-bedroom inside the Royal Casttle likely has a rent to match.

We'd call, but because we avoid dialing any premium rate 976 telephone numbers, we'll wait for Ulana to follow up again through e-mail.
