Muli 1924: the Lama King's Secretary

Lama King's Secretary, originally uploaded by jiulong.

This is the king's personal secretary who saw Rock off when he left Muli to return to Lijiang.

"He brought as a parting gift from the king a bag of mandarins and walnuts, and despite his poverty, presented the leader of the expedition with two brass ladles as a personal token of esteem."
