Family at the homestay at Briddim. Russ, Rangi and I sort of center and our porter on the right. Beautiful family. Note the little souvenir shop in the background!
In the shrine room. It was Tibetan New Year - Losar - so many baked goodies to share. It's worth enlarging this picture as the room is so interesting!
It was just magic sitting in the kitchen around the cooking stove - it was very cold in the evenings. I was amazed to see so many pressure cookers but of course they make cooking so much easier due to the altitude.
