Nepal is a magical place, as is Tibet. One day, I hope to see The Caves of Mustang, with their ancient religious paintings and scrolls.
My thanks to Caroline Johnson who shared many of the wonderful dolls pictured below, as well as the amazing stories that go with them. The other photos are public domain images. Many are similar to my own dolls from this area, which I hope to photograph and post later.
If you enjoy these posts, consider contacting The Red Cross and making a donation to the victims of the Nepal Quakes. Thank you.
