Conversations with sacred mountains – Laurence J. Brahm

 
Mystical, spiritual, sometimes as incomprehensible as a Zen koan.
 
That sums up the people whom Laurence meets on his journey on the tea-horse trail in Yunnan: lagubrious, doped up couples in Dali; a Tibetian girl with a metal stud through her lower lip; Naxi couples who commit suicide to live together forever in paradise; Tibetian lamas clear the clouds with a can of coke; a man devotes his life to cleaning out a temple; a famous Mosu woman who’s been out of China and now returns home.
 
Along the way, he discovers worlds where spirits still roam freely in people’s imagination.  This book is different from other travelogues in that there’s hardly any fact-giving – just a page in the beginning of new places. The bulk of the information comes from his interviews with the characters whom he meets.
