Fire and Brimstone

In January 2012, resistance to Chinese occupation re-emerges.  The newspapers report that Tibetan residents are setting the shops of Chinese owned stores ablaze in Lhasa.  Monks and lay people are setting themselves on fire both in Lhasa and Eastern Tibet. The army moves in and bullets are flying in Lhasa.

How is Lumbum my guide, his wife Namdon and their baby?  Where are you?  Are you safe???  The emails flew back and forth whenever the communication lines were open.  This was when our relationship was forged.  Even though we had not yet me, we became long distance friends.

Carpe Diem,
