I had a lengthy walk through the marsh lands, willing to take a picture of two horses, standing there.

While I was coming closer, a figure appeared from far away, catching up to me and horses as I was getting closer.

It appeared to be a nomad, caring for her horses, came to see who am I and what do I walk.

I was able to say 'Hi' to horses and helped her to direct them away from the marshes and back to the safer land.

To comunicate with nomads, one has to use signs along with language (I used Russian, since it doesn't matter to them — they don't understand anything except Tibetan).
