Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the trip you provided for me.  Was amazed by so many things: at the eagerness of the Mountain Initiatives & SLC IT people who helped to make sure that the trip was a success (even if I hadnt seen a snow leopard it would have been a huge success), the work the SLC has done in the areas that we visited, at the people, at the hospitality of the people, at the land and the amazing Jigmet!  So many things to absorb and comprehend.  And to see four snow leopards, ibex, wolves, lammergeiers, golden eagles, blue sheep etc, hugely rewarding.

I will be in touch.

Thanks again and take care
