You have certainly had wonderful experiences and such nice photos to remember them by. I love this with the monk looking at your camera!

I will risk sounding ignorant with my first comment but:
A) I want their hats.
and B) I am laughing as I type this, I love the dude facial expression in the bottom right corner.

Now that is colorful!

And isn't it interesting how the religious folks everywhere dress up in costume and go through various magical rituals to try to get what they want?

Tibet is without doubt one of the most remarkable places to visit in Asia. It offers fabulous monastery sights, breathtaking high-altitude treks, stunning views of the world’s highest mountains and one of the most likeable peoples you will ever meet.
