Nepal Horse Book

I love the possibility left by the fourth, blank quadrant, especially if you buck tradition and read it like the page of a comic book. Up till now, my sole bit of horse-related Nepal trivia was that there’s a remote valley in the west called Mustang, whose familiar name is entirely a linguistic coincidence but still evocative—I picture a Shangri-La of Fords and horses.
