 Like Olivia in Escape from Behruz, we traveled

 with a  Lhasa Apso puppy. (Ours was named

 Pandu. We got him while trekking in Nepal.)

 Above, a Tibetan man holds Pandu. To the

 right, Pandu wears nomad jewellery.

 People were friendly and curious.

 There were four of us on the expedition, which took a year. We had two Land Rover campers.

 Here we are eating watermelon in the desert north of Yazd, Iran, where we have stopped for the  night.    Left to right: John Markley (my then husband), me, my brother Dennis

 Meadows, and his wife, Dana (Donella) Meadows.  Photo by John Markley
