Yak butter for everyone!

We were at the Barkhor kora market and we bought eight kilos of this Yak butter. Each of you should expect a little in the mail any day now.

Yaks are very plentiful up in this mountain region and yak butter is a staple of the Tibetian’s diet. You may remember that Francie and I had Tibetian butter tea in Songpan and it was very, very buttery.

It is amazing to see them weigh it on the scales.

  1. Wait! Wait! Before you mail! Yak butter may be wasted on the mail! It looks tasty!
