  1. Dear Bukhu,
    I am very interested in joining your tour to the Gobi Desert this year. Could you please let me know if there are any places available. My son and daughter may also join but while they are thinking about it I wish to move forward and secure a place for myself. My daughter is vegetarian and has asked me to find out about the food. Is it possible to cater for her and what type of food would be on offer?
    Regards,
    Jan.

    Hello Bukhu – I saw you perform at the National Folk Festival on the weekend – and at Woodford 2015/16 with Equus – I enjoyed the performances very much. I didn’t know until this weekend that you take tour groups to Mongolia once a year. I can’t come this year as I already have other travel plans, but would like to be on your mailing list, in the event that you take another group in 2017.
    The trip looks very interesting. Kind regards, Judith

    • Dear Judith

      Thanks for sending me email 🙂 I’m taking maximum 15 people next year 2017 and 5 people booked for next year already . If you want me to save your place for next year let me know.

      Kind Regard

      Bukhu

  3. Hello Bukhu
    I learned of your tours when you played with Equus in Grafton which was totally invigorating.
    I thought going to Mongolia for my 60th birthday would be the penultimate. However my niece has thrown in a wedding so… I’m going to have to wait til 2017-can i?
