  1. Dear Dechen,

    I am an editorial assistant working at DK Travel Guides and I am looking for a factchecker to check the Tibet chapter of our guide to China plus the relevant hotel and restaurant listings. I wonder whether you or a friend would be interested and, if so, whether you could get back in touch with me? The factcheck is due to commence on 31st July 2013 and due to be completed on 4th September 2013. As a result it would be great if you could get back in touch with me as soon as possible – we can discuss the project more thoroughly and in private!

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    All the best

  3. Dear Dechen la,
    i`m LIV from germany. Last week i have finished the book “Idols on the path” by Tsewang Pemba in a german version.
    For me, the last chapter is very interresting, where Kunga Rinpoche explain Rinzing some philosophical details out of this old manuscript, which is called (in german) “Gaukelspiel des Vergänlichen”. My english is not very good. I trie to translate in english, may be:”jugglery of transience”.
    I feel a deep resonanz to this explanations, and so i asked me, if this manuscript is real existing?
    There are many facts in this book, wich happened in reality.
    I starded to search for informations in the www and was sad to recongnize the death of Tsewang Pemba, so I can not aske him directly.
    But now i`m happy to find your blog. Can you help me to answere this question? May be you have some informations, or you know people who i can asked ?
    Thu dsche tsche
    and tashi Deleg
