Ovoo, Blue on Blue, Mongolia by 

Perched on most hill passes in Mongolia perches something called an Ovoo. Usually, a pile of rocks placed by travellers as offerings for local spirits, a custom that is said to pre-date Buddhism and Shamanism. It’s correct etiquette to circle the ovoo 3 times and leave something on the ovoo before continuing your journey.

Travel is tough. You have to arrange things for your time away. Someone has to come over and feed the piranhas and you have to make sure the place isn’t burgled.

Cameras are bulky and these days you have to carry enough leads to macrame a basket.

Or, you could just wallpaper your house with photographs you’ve bought from me! Just think of all the money you’ll save!
