        The good news is the plane didn't crash...and there is no bad news. The lights that dot the hillside outside our window go out one by one...it’s late in Namche. Our floor is less carpet space than duffels overflowing with camera and climbing gear. Namche is the hub of almost all activity in the high Khumbu and yet now in the off season, it’s hard to find a shop open before noon. We’ve been here for two days, breathing the thinner air, adjusting to the cooler days and hanging out with the Tibetan traders below the village. Thamserku, Kwangde, and Kusum Kanguru tower above us in an impressive trifecta of ice and stone...conditions look good and we are stoked. Tomorrow we’ll leave before the sun hits the village and wander up the Thame valley towards Tibet. Our friend Chhewang Nima will come along fort he ride.. You’ve never heard of him...but you should have considering he’s climbed Everest 17 times (yeah, you read that right)! His is just another example of Sherpa modesty and stoicism. The next four days will take us over the Renjo La at roughly 17,400 ft., down to Gokyo, and finally to Phortse where we will stage for our attempt on Tawoche. Three friends, two cameras, one trail....epic.

          For twenty years, filmmaker Jennifer Fox has been following the high Tibetan master, Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and his Italian born son, Yeshi, with her camera. The result is the astounding feature length documentary, MY REINCARNATION, which tells the rare inside story of one of the last reincarnate teachers to be trained in Tibet and his son's stubborn reluctance to follow in his father's footsteps. Rinpoche escaped Tibet in 1959 and settled in Italy, where he married and had two children, of which Yeshi was the first. As a boy, Yeshi was recognized as the reincarnation of a famous spiritual master, who died after the Chinese invaded Tibet. But Yeshi grew up in Italy and never wanted to have anything to do with this legacy...

              The final creation of a ten-day workshop with Tibetan monks: a chain reaction contraption! Each pair of monks was responsible for their own table, and they had to build a "machine" that would eventually set off the next table. Highlights include: water being used to complete a circuit; a soccer match between the US and Tibet, an elephant-powered ball-kicking mechanism; hand-made gears; a monk slapping a Chinese [cringe!]; a solar system; a monk being run over by a rickshaw; suicidal penguin switch; the Tibet express bringing Tibetans back to a free country; a rubber-band twang switch; 30 joyful and beautiful monks!

                    While on holiday in Nepal earlier this summer, I visited my friend's tibetan carpet factory. It was fascinating to see the entire process of how these particular rugs were made. I thought then, why not make a small film about it...
