A New York accent in Nepal is not only not noticeable, it's kind of hard to ignore, especially when that voice belongs to such a kind-hearted traveler. It was my great pleasure last year to meet William, an even older fart than me who has since gone on to travel all across the Himalayas, from Sikkim across to Ladakh. Along the way he's taken some lovely photographs, most recently from the Phugtal Monastery in the Zanskar region of Ladakh.
