Tibet monks

This post was originally published on 2014 and updated on 2018.


Tibet was a tough trip. With only 60% to 70% available oxygen at these high altitudes, especially the nights were more like a nightmare. Four hours sleep and the rest of the night struggling to find oxygen. The Tibetan high altitude pills didn’t help too much. The highest point reached was at 5, 248 m.

I arrived in Lhasa with a small Air China plane coming from Kathmandu. The view from the plane was impressive. The entire chain of Himalayas covered in snow can be seen. Mt. Everest was on the left side of the airplane.

Burning Man

“A city in the desert. A culture of possibility. A network of dreamers and doers.”

Burning Man is an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance that takes place annually in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada, USA.

The Burning Man event is guided by ten principles: radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation and immediacy.

This year’s theme is “I, Robot”. The event starts on August 26, and culminates with the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy, which is set alight on Saturday night, September 1, 2018 in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.
