Russia's Crown Jewels
Now for some news from the weird. Chinggis' tomb may have a competitor for the title of most elusive (and likely non-existent) treasure in Mongolia. According to a LA Times story, a LA socialite is convinced that the last Russian Czar's crown jewels are buried somewhere in the Gobi Desert. It is a family legend that includes bandits, a map, and failed attempts to recover the hidden booty. I think the story pretty much speaks for itself, so I won't write anymore.
