You know it's spring in Leh when they start working on the "Leh Beautification" project again.
They are laying sewer lines throughout the entire town. And that's a good thing.
But at what cost?
In front of the Jokhang - Main Temple in Leh Bazaar, two of the last remaining, 19th Century buildings came down. And I fear this week the last two trees standing anywhere in Leh Bazaar will also meet their end.
Cynthia will be blogging as she works with our Himalayan projects this year.
