Ladakh is a magical place. Monks, monasteries and mountains. Buddhism is the faith of choice. You see it everywhere, prayer flags that they hope send prayers up with every breath of wind and prayer wheels that the faithful spin for their petitions to be heard. Babies with rosy cheeks and men and women with lines etches into their faces from years of labor under the sun. A tough people, but never without a smile.
