Pilgrims at Samye Monastery

Samye was the first Buddhist monastery to be built in Tibet. Following a long bus ride we joined other travellers and several pilgrims for the hour long boat ride across the Brahmaputra river and then a tractor trip to the site. One of our first encounters was this couple who had braved the long trek to fulfil their pilgrimage and make their devotions.

My partner Carol and I set off on a 400 day long trip around the Indian Subcontinent. Travelling mainly by local bus it proved to be an extraordinary adventure as we rubbed shoulders with many interesting people and visited fascinating places. We travelled through Sri Lanka, much off India and into Nepal and wrote the book Cardamom Days upon which my blog is based. We wanted the trip to be extraordinary and extraordinary is what it proved to be.
