Before you enter Tibet, you have to get a special Tibet Tourist Permit (plus other visas) and without them, you wont be able to board a flight or train to Tibet. During your time in Tibet you need to have a guide. In the capital Lhasa, you don't need the guide with you at all times but there are certain areas/buildings which they must be present. This means that if you want to stay just in Lhasa you have to employ a guide even if you don't ...

Savor the simple...the rest doesn't just gets in the way. Today I will show up to eat three times and someone will cook and serve me. I only need to feel gratitude and savor what I get.

    There was an earthquake in Nepal the other night. Felt it here but no damage, hoping the aftershocks will be over before we get there.
    Still exploring Llasa, been to the Sera Monastery & Potala Palace ( used to be the Dalai Lama's home) Tomorrow off to Nam-Tso Lake. Took a Tibetan cooking class.
    Next we spend a week driving across the Tibetan plateau to Everst Base Camp.

    Cheers Allan
