If there is somewhere where you really should take a rabies shoot before you go it is in Mongolia. For some strange reason some health centres doesnt advice to do it, but I would really recomend it everyone that is going to the countryside. With so many dogs, and so bad transportsystem it is very likely that you get bitten by a dog and cant get to a hospital in 24 hours. The shoot will give you more time.|
If an angry dog runs after you, shout at it, throw things on it, kick it, hit it with a stick, do anything you need to get it away. Sound cruel, but hopefully it will leave you as soon it understand that you are the master.
