It’s quite rare that you get the chance to see both lineage holders together: Karmapa and Shamarpa, Black Hat Lama and Red Hat Lama.
Stupas also are everywhere: both old and new. It’s impossible not only to take pictures of all of them but even to count, like stars in the sky which never can be counted.
This is true present-day clothes. It seems surprising that somebody can wear national clothes in our world of jeans, t-shirts and folk skiffle-groups but here it is exactly like that.
There are funny phrases on the sides of the road appealing to be careful:
«If you sleep your family will weep», «Better be Mr. Late than Late Mr.»
As I think the photographer was to be faster and more enduring than his fellow travellers. The photographer always needs 15 minutes extra to take a picture of everything he would like to.
