Monastery

Tulu Gudo
What a fascinating monastery...on a concrete plinth with a corrugated roof and adorned with the paintings on the exterior. Were there paintings also inside in say inner concentric corridors? The original Ark of the Covenant is reputedly in Axum so I find Tulu Godo's claim interesting. Maybe they meant a replica which many monasteries claim. Your comments regarding political power issues were interesting as well.

Monastery

Tulu Godo
The Ark "was" there for a time before being moved further north - I couldn't get into the monastery as it was closed on the day we visited

The amazing Pamir Highway
We were there a year ago and your blog has brought back amazing memories. The river has such power. The people are so friendly. The road trip of a lifetime. Thanks for taking us along.

We loved our time in Bhutan. One of those special places. I'm glad they are controlling the tourism so it does not end up like Nepal. MJ

The Pamir
Wow. If t'was not for the names of the places and the wonderful vistas in your photos, I would have had no idea you followed the same trail and met some of the same folk we did in August last year. I regard the scenery as breathtaking and exhilarating. You seemed to like it too. However from your writing our experiences were so, so different. You make it sound like an unpleasant ordeal. Your descriptions of the accommodation that was basic and the food albeit bland was as if you expected 5 star. There were three on our trip that had similar expectations. We found the generosity of the people who offered all they had transcended all lack of comforts. This is one of the harshest climates in winter in the World. Summer is a warm window of opportunity. Our foray into the Pamirs was such that our spirits soared at the wonder of the place. If I travel remote I want to experience remote. Everyone's experience is different. T'was an interesting read to experience yours. Yours is a warning that if one expects comforts then the Pamir is not the place to be. That feedback is valuable for readers who need to know that.

Bravo!
As much as I enjoyed reading about your days in Bhutan and your photos, my favorite was reading about your concern for animals and you helping the lady rescue that poor cow! Wish everyone felt that animals were more than just commodities.
