Phinjo, age 89, is the oldest man…

Phinjo, age 89, is the oldest man in Kuorong, Tibet. Hard to imagine what he’s seen since 1930 as this land has changed in myriad ways. But, he’s still spry, his 1 tooth smile and twinkling eyes telling stories across our language barrier. We shared a cup of butter tea, I bought a small mala from him, and we went our separate ways. Small and insignificant perhaps, but it’s these brief interactions, the momentary human connections that transcend the barriers of language and culture, time and place, that bring out the richness in travel. Be well, Phinjo. May you have many years yet to come. #portraitphotography #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer #tibet #portraitmood #shotbypixel #shotonpixel
