how's this for some incredibly dense, descriptive language...(without ever being too much??)
Just incredible to me, wish I could write like this:
excerpt from The Snow Leopard by Peter
"Long ago some traveler brought poinsettia and oleander to Tatopani, and there is a tea stall in this village. Across from the tea stall, on a thatch roof, grows a cucumber with yellow-flowered vine, under the eaves, on the clay windowsill, a flute, a wood comb, and a bright red pepper lie in happy composition. Beneath the windowsill small children tumble, and one little girl, sedate and serious, changes her clothes from top to bottom. In the mud street, in the rain, three small boys hunching knee to knee play cards beneath a black umbrella."
And here's a link to a pic of a couple of snow leopard cubs:
