Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Tibetan Roads

Some pictures from driving around the roads in Tibet. My camera doesn't really capture he beauty that is all around you. Most of the "fun" of this trip is driving long drives through beautiful, mostly untouched, lands with blue skies and rolling mountains. Pictures can't capture that, sadly.

A monastery atop a hill in the distance.

A checkpoint police office is pushing a car that seems to have broken down. Every so far on the road there are checkpoint to make sure your car is allowed with the people you have and so forth. Heavily regulated.

A common site on the trip. Me peeing on the side of the road.

Sheep's head, or what's left mainly jaw and some head.

Went to a nightclub, tibetan style. Was WEIRD! to say the least, but pretty fun. This was some locals doing traditional dancing on the stage. I joined for a few songs as well but that guy in the black coat was just too good.


prayer flags and reststops.

prayer flags at the highest point on the road. I believe this was above 6k meters. yikes!

the long and winding road.... that leads... to everest. I think that's how the Beatles song goes.

I know that guy! Adam or Kaja snuck a photo of me


a different side of that monastery on the hill.

Stupa and old castle/fortress/monastery.

prayers and power. power and prayers

Adam looks so unhappy, but we all know he loves it. Lack of oxygen at high altitudes can do strange things to people.
