In April 2010, I went on an expedition to the rooftop of the world – Tibet. I remember so well the taste of warm yak butter tea in the morning, the thick smell of incense burned in the Tibetan Buddhist temples, and the general sense of awe I found having gone halfway across the world to experience a place I had only read and dreamed about. Tonight I thought of Tibet again, as I often do when I want to let my mind wander a bit to memories past. I thought I would share a piece of my journey there, here with you.
