More Leh photos

 What a bird!


The Leh Shiite Mosque. I talked to the Imam there, who was a really friendly and peaceful guy. He made me recite a few words in Arabic after which he proclaimed that now I was a Moslem, too. Well it suited me just fine, and I took part in a prayer and was explained that if you only keep God in your heart you don't need to do anything; you will get what you need!


Ladakhi ladies performing a traditional dance, and showing off their traditional dresses. Notice the beautiful headdress in particular!

Early nightlife in Leh. Nightlife in Leh is just an empty street and a few dogs barking!
