Pour it on my hands. Are the people from Bajyo coming or not? —I Don't know. You can pour now. Keep on pouring. Pour less water. I'm done. I'll pour if you want to wash? Pass me that cream. Both of them. Do fast.—OK. Hey Mingmar hello. —You came to pick Yartsa?—Yes Where did you come from? Kalung?—Yes. Where are you going today?—To Takpar area. Can you find a lot there?—May be. Where did you go yesterday?—To Tuptser area. Can I use this?—Sure. Kumar come.—What?— Close the door. Turn the fire off. Put the firewood to the side. Fold the mattress. Move. Did you see other pair of my gloves?—No. Give me the water. Is it clean?—Yes. Enough! Where did I put my gloves? Fold that mattress to that side. Alright! Are you ready to go?—Going to pick Yartsa. Where did you yesterday?—To Duptser. I didn't find much. Move.—Wait. Animals wont be able to enter.—Yes. Mingmar!—What? — Do you remember your wife? So much.—When will you see her?—Tomorrow. Today is a good day.—Yes, great day. Bring me my back.—Are you going this side? Do you see people?—They might be coming from down below. From Kalung?—They must be climbing.—How many? I think ten to fifteen. I see someone down there.—Oh yes. Let's go earlier. Let's go this better way. Did you see my friend coming here?—I didn't see. Maybe he didn't come.—I think we can get thirty Yartsa today. Hope so.—Today you wont get. Why not?—Because you are small. Are my friends not coming? —They might be coming from Bajyo. Look at these lovely flowers.—Oh. Is this hole for Beaver?—Yes, Beavers hole. Hey friend?—Are you fine? Are you coming from home?—Yes .—How are my family? Are you tired?— I came fast to catch you guys. Where are you going?—To Takpar. We must be the first one today?—Other's might be coming. Getting tired. Look at the tents at Bajyo. Lots of them. —Will be more. I like to go that place. I found thirty pieces.—Wow! Smell the incense.—It's that one. This one.—Yes. Smells good. Pass me the water. Hard to climb up hill without water. Wipe your face. There's water. Last year I found Yartsa around here.—Really. Also down below.—Yes. What happened?—This fell down. It's about to fall. You guys go ahead. I'll come slowly. Pick that flower.—Must have fallen from the ladies. They must be ahead of us. It's blossoming.—Some have already turned into flowers. People have arrived there already. Where?—Two people are walking. They have reached early.—Yes. Are you talking about old person. Let's rest up there on the plain area. Bit further up. You won't find. Waste of a time. Look here.—Beaver's hole. Shall we rest?—We can rest there. It's hard to breath because of the altitude. I came all the way from the house.—Wow! Sky is crystal clear today. People from Bajyo are coming. Did he give you the shoes?—I left at the shepherds house. How is it?—Looks like this. It's better than this. I don't know where it's made from.—Is it from China? No. There are yellow and red ones. I brought two shoes. Did you order two pairs?—Yes, different designs. My stomach is upset.—Mine too. You have cold.
