Thangka of our Trike Ride!
The painting above is a traditional Buddhist Thangka (a way of telling a story in pre-literate Tibet). It just arrived from Kathmandu and depicts our journey. In top-Right is Lhasa and the Potala Palace - bottom-Left Kathmandu, The Himalayas separating them and the Friendship Highway snaking through the landscape. It shows Carol and I in numerous points along the road and even a Yeti on the mounainside!
