In honor of the weekend, and my efforts to whittle down my photo library (hard drive problems), here’s six photos. They’re pattern-driven, color-chosen and evocative of my insatiable travel lust.
1. Tibetan tea in a Beijing teahouse (Beijing, China) 2. Moments before anchoring for an afternoon of deep-water soloing, a style of rock climbing that requires an ocean, but no rope (Railay, Thailand) 3. Carved bamboo (Yangshou, China) 4. Stilt houses, red lanterns and the Dragon’s Backbone rice terraces (Longshen, China) 5. Monks’ laundry (Kathmandu, Nepal) 6. En route to Everest, a sherpa stands triumph (Everest region, Nepal)
