My Room In Ladakh

This is a photo of my bedroom in a guesthouse that I stayed at in Ladakh, which is a region in the northernmost part of India in the Himalayas. It was probably my favourite of all the rooms I slept in on my five month trip, something about the deep window sill and the windows that opened wide looking out onto a field of wheat and sunflowers that swayed in the high altitude breeze. It was so beautiful oh my god.

At about 3pm every day the afternoon light would shine directly through my window and onto my bed and I’d sit there and watch this gorgeous Tibetan woman (a refugee) with long black plaits with flowers at the end feed her cow under the tree. My boyfriend and I had broken up while travelling and I spent a lot of time crying, but somehow this window sill and this view nursed my achy little heart, and after I had been filled up with chai and momos (Tibetan dumplings) from my favourite chai stall down the road I’d come back and sit on the window and find calm while the mighty Himalayas watched over me and the pretty sunflowers kept dancing. This photo is so special!
