So, here we are in the final week of March.  The springtime arrived last week and the beginning of the baseball season is less than a week away.  There’s some more cold weather on the way, but hopefully the worst of it is behind us for the year.  Naturally, then, one’s thought turn toward….the summer.
As I wrote before, I have not been to Asia for five years, so I am planning to go back this summer.  Yes, I know.  It will be hot!!!  Still, that’s the way my schedule has worked out this year, so I just have to live with it.

With thoughts of Asia in mind, I’ve set myself to scanning more of the many photographs that I made in Asia from 2004 to 2011 (and I’m not even including the color photos I made on my incredible trip to China in 1989).
So, here are some photos from my trip to Tibet in 2007.  There are many places in Asia where I have not visited but would like to see – India, Myanmar, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, etc. – but Tibet is surely a place that I would like to see again and in greater depth.
Hopefully, one day, I will.

    Hi dave, am told there is a fantastic train service from beiging to lhasa. I dont have much details but i hve often thought of doing the trip myself. As i told you earlier talk to oleg in china. He will be able to best guide you and being a photographer himself he will most certainly point you in the right direction. Regards ashok
