Wangden Andrutsang is a wonderful friend to the Tibetan Photo
Project and is creating a beautiful photographic record of Tibetan
living in exile in Dharamsala, India. When these two photos left
arrived in Feb. 2004, we asked for some information on the monk
and recieved the email at right.

Joe Omigo, The photo that I send you is of a monk. We lovingly
call him Kushok Geshe la. He used to be our religious and spiritual
teacher when we were in school. Now he is in his 70's and retired.
He lives at the old peoples' apartment. He was the one who nicknamed
me 'Birdie'. Because he often caught us on trees in in bushes
trying to pluck black berries.....ha! ha! ha! ha!.
to these days many of my school mates will not remember me by my
name but if someone says birdie in Tibetan (Jheewoo la) then they
will say ah!!!! yes yes...ha! ha! ha! I am using the sony digital
video camera that my wife's sister presented me when they visited
us last year. It has a digital still shot with a memory card. Thats
all for now will write later..... Adeious Omigo, Take care my friend
