Yikes!  I apologize for the multi-month hiatus. I’ve made it across a few more areas of Tibet since the last entry, and had sweet reunions in several of my favorites. I’ll try to catch up to that quickly, internet connections willing.  It has been so good, though a little too busy!

So here we return to us winding down the Kailash journey. Waking up outside of Paryang, we took a long day’s drive towards Shigaste, Tibet’s second most important city, to make camp between Saga and Lhatse. It was our last night of camping and nature made sure to make it a memorable one. It took an extra hour or so to pitch tents with kajillion-mile-an-hour winds attempting to whirl us towards Oz. But once the air calmed playtime began with the local pastoralist kids. We were camped in their meadows amongst yak, sheep and goats.  

    

And after cart-wheel tutorials concluded we settled in for our last eve of hanging in the dining tent:

Okay, I’m being ousted from my internet cafe. More soon…
