Moviestar "Onshu", our horseman and friend. Handsome and a ladykiller. Didn't affect his competence though.

Gelanab my young nomadic friend and teacher. At twelve he is noble, wise, tough beyond his years and utterly 'real'. A joyful reunion with him and his family.

Noble Sirs Dakpa, Jeffu and Tenzin in front of Khampa Caravan's restaurant after a huge meal. Old friends and trek partners for different segments of this project.
