1 On the Tibetan plateau in China there was no place to hide. The snow
2 flew around us like arrows. Our Tibetan herder, Meiga, has forced his horse
3 through the storm and was searching for shelter. When the visibility dropped
4 to near zero all which we could do was stop and bunch up the horses.

5 My goal was to travel the length of the Mekong, the world’s twelfth
6 longest river. To reach this place I had been travelled a thousand miles in an
7 old army jeep from Xining. Now, as we were sheltered behind our horses, I
8 wondered if we would have to turn back. Then the storm lifted up, as suddenly
9 as it had ever begun, leaving a bruised grey sky.

10 After we rode another hour before coming to a solitary, cone-shaped hill. It
11 was the holy mountain, Meiga told us. He reached into his saddlebag and
12 pulled out a stack of colored papers printed out with Buddhist scripture.
13 He shouted and flung the prayers high over into the air and watched happily
14 as the wind swept them away.
