Speaking this month we have:
- Jacqui Trotter – Serbia
- John Pilkington – Up the Mekong to Tibet
- A story from back in 2003, when our president John Pilkington set out on an exciting trip up the world’s twelfth longest river from the South China Sea to Tibet and beyond. Starting in the ricefields of Vietnam, he made his way via Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and Myanmar and through the gorges of China’s Yunnan province, meeting river-people of seven nationalities along the way. In a climax to the trip, he and two Tibetans stepped onto the glacier at the foot of Mount Guosongmucha, north of Tibet, where the Mekong rises at over 5,200 metres. He was the first European to reach and map its source.
