The people here are extremely nice and yet peculiarly closed off. On one side, they love showing off their culture and food. Yet on the other hand, it’s hard to get them to talk about anything beyond the “touristy” stuff. It’s great for my assignment, but I’m more curious than that and would like to get to know “the people” beyond an awesome plate of food or renting a chopper for a tour to the snow covered (!) mountain tops. It’ll take some time. I just need to earn their trust, I guess.
Speaking of food. Here’s what I had for lunch today. Tomorrow, pics from a mountain trip.
