Flag of China  , Xizang,

Turquoise lakes - how such colour? - with cairn-studded shorelines.
Migrating waterfowl resting on the improbable tincture.
Are there fish
in these waters? Yes.
Do the fishermen catch many? No fishing. Waters
Sacred.

Prayer-flagged mountain passes. Five-thousand metre headaches - they're the best kind!


Squat toilets in concrete stalls, rectangular holes in cut out of the
floor and shitty fingers wiped around the walls. Be careful of the
updraft. That'll be 1Yuan, please.

Mountains becoming mountains - snow peaked brilliant whiteness. Wind blowing snow off the sheerest faces into the bluest skies.

Temperatures once again soaring unreasonably. Strip off layers.


The optics of my sunglasses are so bad they give me a headache at the
best of times (thank you, TK Max). Here they are unwearable and I am
left to fend off the dazzling brightness by myself.
