View of the village rooftops with prayer wheels (and prayer flags) Prayer wheels and prayer flags in the background This is a shrine on the hillside above the town.  We walked up to it.  It was much steeper than it looks in this photo. The green fields and mountains and town
Prayer flags at the shrine.  The kids were delighted to find some little flags that had blown off onto the ground Tote retrieving a prayer flag Door.  You can see the firewood stacked on the roof. This is a typical Marpha side street.
