    ... had half an hour or so to refresh ourselves at the hotel and for Arnold to check on all of his patients - and then we were off to visit the Sera Monastery. There were originally 5500 monks living here. Now there are only 250-300. This number is controlled by the government. Years ago, there were no opportunities for education in Tibet. Families were very large and several boys from each family were chosen to be educated at ...

    ... in Tibet. There are three monastic colleges for studying philosophy and one for the practice of Tantric Buddhism. In the afternoon we went to Sera Monastery.

    ... Dalai Lamas, Panchen Lamas and a myriad of others all represented in gold or gold leaf statues. Halls crammed full of them, in niches, in caves, some tiny, some two stories high. The Tibetans are friendly, kind, colourful, enormously spiritual and believe totally in destiny - 'karma'.

    ... but no where else. Most of the restrooms in Tibet make the worst outhouse I've been in look spectacular. I'm using the great outdoors as much as possible!
