I've been traveling and researching stories in Tibet, southwestern China, and northern India for the past month. I'm back in LA now, with much to share very soon. It's going to take a while to get used to eating things other than yak, though. Here's a photo I shot of yak-butter and ghee candles burning in front of the Long Life Buddha at a temple in Lhasa, Tibet. It was peach season there, so piles of fresh peaches were stacked before the gods at shrines throughout the city. It's good to be back home on the blog.
