At the closing ceremony on 19 February, those feelings had long since departed the Winter Camp.
What an opportunity. What a fabulous opportunity to support Ladakh's future leaders to become all that they can become. A little like Ron's idea of "build it and they will come" what old farts like me need to do is make sure the opportunity is there and then get the heck out of the way.
A huge thanks to the dozens and dozens of equipment-donators, supporters and volunteers from North America who helped made this happen. And even more thanks to the dedicated Ladakhi volunteers from Domkhar, Shayok and Lalok who created magic for hundreds of children and youth this year.
