Tashi’s knowledge and love for his culture and people contributed to this journey’s perfect ambience. Congratulations to Stephanie – I was impressed by her adaptability. She seems completely integrated into the country. This was an unforgettable experience, for the beauty of the sites, and the meetings with and kindness of the local people. Everything was arranged to connect us to others, to the land, and to ourselves. Thank you to Akarma – our driver and friend – to our host family, to all Tibetans and Ladhakis, and to all the exceptional people we met.
