Book wanted

Filed under: General

To fill a glaring gap in my bookshelf, I am looking for the following book. I am willing to pay a decent price if somebody can get me a copy (e-mail address at bottom of this page).

Edit 3 Dec 2005: Finally located a used copy. Nothing like finding a book you have been frantically searching for the last two years. Something tells me I should start thinking about writing a certain master’s thesis now…

Leslie, Donald Daniel: Islam in traditional China: a short history to 1800. Canberra College of Advanced Education, 1986.

Happy happy!!On 29 April 2004, I proposed to my lovely lady Sanna who happily said yes!! What a great finish to a great holiday in Tuscany! And what better place to buy our rings than on Ponte Vecchio in Florence, an old bridge that since the late 15th century has been home to goldsmiths?

Sanna, jag šlskar dej!

Where to buy tsampa

Filed under: Tibetan stuff

As I get a steady number of inquiries about where to buy tsampa in the West, I started a listing. So far the only brand I am aware of is Sonam’s Tsampa. Shoot me an e-mail if you know of any other sellers/manufacturers.
