So finally completed my two week Landcruiser trip around Eastern Tibet. 2800km with five strangers through snow and rain and sun and everything in between. Was a good trip, a mixture of stuff I'd seen before and new places I managed to track down. And a new personal record: two pairs of boxer shorts for 15 days. Oh yes.

Now back in Lhasa resting and writing up stuff and getting ready for two five-day treks. Should be nice to have a slower pace. Travel at the speed of car is just too fast for me.

Anyhow, hope you enjoy the photos and more from me soon.
