    One thought on “Namma: A Tibetan Love Story”

    1. I've been reading this over the last week. It's been interesting, certainly an insight into a very different way of life.

    2. As a massive fan of travel books this was my cup of tea. Learnt loads about Tibetan culture, especially the midnight raids on eligible women for marriage, and of course, Yaks. Also gives hope for those couples of differing cultures. You couldn't get more diverse as these 2

    5. An amazing insight into a culture so very different from our own. Colourful and heartwarming. An armchair traveller's dream.
