You’ve probably never heard of the World Nomad Games, and you’re going to be upset that you’re just now finding out about them.
This year’s games, which kicked off with the opening ceremony on Saturday, take place in Kyrgystan and celebrate the nomadic heritage of the Central Asian nations.
Forty countries are participating, not all of which have nomadic history — but who could pass up the opportunity to take part in something as awesome as this?
One such country is actually the U.S., which brought a surprisingly large group to participate.
