Dharamshala in the foothills of the Himalayas is the Indian headquarters of the Tibetan community in exile,
and home to the Dalai Lama. In 2010 I spent three months teaching English as a volunteer at Tibet Charity,
a Tibetan-run NGO which runs English classes, has a vet unit, a home nursing department, and more.
“Between Monks and Monkeys” is the true story of my encounters with my students and their lives,
the Tibetan language and religion, monkeys in the forest, other foreign volunteers, the fascinating
landscape and wildlife of the area, and cappuccinos decorated with FREE TIBET!
REVIEW: Gill’s well-crafted writing taught me a lot about the life of Tibetan refugees in India....This is a travel book with extra depths. For me, it stirred many thoughts and I found it inspiring. Ruth Gardner, Goodreads
