More about India

To back up a bit:
This is the first trek we went on, to the nomads. We travel by jeep (you can see why if you look closely at the "highway")

The Highway

Nomad PeopleThis is where the nomads live. Himalayan desert. There's only water from snow/glacier run-off. The nomads must move around as the streams dry up and the grass is eaten.

Camping---next to the goatsIn this area, the people are Tibetan Buddhist, like the Dalai Lama. There are many monasteries scattered about the mountains. Many families send one child to be a monk or a nun.
