Dear Travelogue Readers —
For this installment of the travelogue it’s obvious to me that the pictures I took tell a different and more interesting story than my words would. What is there for me to say? I climbed a hill. It was steeper than it looked. Halfway up it snowed for a bit, and I hid with some Nederlanders under a boulder next to a blasted monastic building. Eventually the others turned back. The view was very beautiful at the top.
Thanks for reading my travelogue — expect another installment about the printing monastery at Derge in the next day or two. I invite you to forward this to a friend if you enjoy it, and if you’re new to the travelogue you can subscribe to receive future installments at this link.

Jasper’s Travelogue – 5
A Hilltop in a Valley West of Ganzi
Also staying at the monastery are a couple from the Netherlands (Edger and Hilde) and a couple from Germany (Lea and Martin). The monks feed us tsampa in the mornings. It’s a beautiful place.
