Have a dog

Some recent memories of Tibet (TAT).

Please horn for avalanche of the Kharo la.

A rare Gaza Strip venture on the same pass.

On Mentsikang road in Lhasa one is offered vagarious ice cream. Did not try.

At the Potala you are greeted by this welcome warning.

At Shigatse renovations are on. You are warned to be responsible whilst producing everyone. (God?)

Gyantse has traditional ties to French haute cuisine. As we all know, the yak is an essential ingredient.

Ceci n'est pas une no photo sign.

Nakartse, famous for its snowland...

This here will become an all time favourite of mine. Seen at the 7th dalai lama's palace in the Norbulinka.

The Lukhang apparently sits on top of dragon king poo. The official ticket says so.

The 'cool & sex' condom is certified by some agency with a very unfortunate logo choice.

This piece smuggled to Tashidzong (about 50km before Everest base camp) from the '42 German-Russian border?
