I was in the middle of the prairie.
Endless hills almost looked like sand dunes, there was a scenery I had never seen before. Was it because of the lack of oxygen or the altitude, the sky was as blue as it could possibly be.
In the deep blue sky, countless vultures flew in circles with their vast wings wide open. It could be over a hundred of them. They made spontaneous descents making sharp noises as they gracefully made circles. Some of them
descended almost to graze my head. I continued my way hoping that they won’t take my head away.
I was in Tibet to witness sky burial. A burial ceremony which let the predatory birds eat a human corpse, it is a way to realize impermanence of life, a common ritual in Tibet.
