My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited: Yakmen Family

Early morning in the high valley (4300m) at the edge of Upper Mustang (Nepal) where mother of a small family is milking one of the 70 yaks that belong to them. Behind that mountain is Tibet. Yaks are very valuable and provide food, fur/wool and fuel for many remote villages in the desert area. While one may be considered rich having so many yaks it is a non-stop hard work that only leaves room for a prayer.
