I will leave in a week and will return at the end of October. Before I leave I will turn off the commenting option for this Diary, because I have removed more than 1,300 spam items in a little over a month! Commenting will be turned back on once I am back.

Will you have to be w/o guitar when travelling Tibet like last year in Italy? I could imagine that the altitude wouldn’t do fine with the guitar, no?
I would not dare take one of my guitars on this trip. I expect to buy a guitar in China and hope to find something for a hundred bucks or so. The guitar will be carried by a yak and will have to endure quite a bit in terms of temperatures and handling. If it survives I will gift it to a local person at the end of our journey.
