My Favourite Things - Tibetan Blankets

My Favourite Things - Tibetan Blankets

There’s been a lot of interest in the so called “Tibetan blankets” in our gallery recently. The reason? The sun has come out, the weather is glorious and they make fabulous picnic blankets. You can sit on them or use them like a tablecloth to lay out your spread of outdoor summer food - no need to worry about spills or marks as they machine wash well.

Ladakh: Kanji to Hanupatta over the Yogma La

Ladakh: Kanji to Hanupatta over the Yogma La Previous: Buddha Statues at Kanji After lunch we say goodbye to the golden fields and harvesting villagers of Kanji. In 2012 we walked in the opposite direction and I anticipate an easy two hour stroll through a gorge and across pasture with meandering streams to an idyllic campsite among stone walls. False memory! The walk takes several hours and a cold wind takes the pleasure; the walk seems long and uninteresting even though the landscape is getting more dramatic. A late afternoon river crossing adds some interest and is easier than it first appears. Nonetheless I'm pleased to reach camp, our long slog over the Timti La two days ago...
