3 August 2008
We stopped for tea, picked up a traveling monk and delivered him to his monastery, where I took this photo.
We also saw/rode bactrian (2 humped) camels, and hiked up to a deserted monastery.
Being limited to one pic a day is frustrating sometimes. :)
We were given the traditional white scarf upon arrival at the hotel and about 10 minutes after I took this pic I was fast asleep. Now in the "Cradle of Buddhism" in the Himalayas, we are at an elevation of 11,483 ft. and visitors are advised to spend a day acclimatizing to the elevation to avoid headaches.
