McLeod Ganj
The exiled Tibetan government and His Holiness The Dalai Lama reside in McLeod Ganl. In the foothills of the Himalayas above Dharahmashala,  they share this hilltop village, with the local peoples, tourists, tourist shops, restaurants, yoga studios, cows, hippies and a special group of young anglo men coiffing their hair into man buns.

Australian Sikh. Nice guy.  I chatted with him awhile about his sword. He explained the British had once limited blade lengths; hence the Sikhs could only carry daggers.  But with no limitations in McLeod Ganj, he carried the sword because he could.    -McLeod Ganj
