    ... evening. The local people love to dance so they come to the square and dance for about an hour and a half each evening. Fantastic. I cannot see the population of Bethanga or Talgarno doing this but it looks like fun. This morning we flew from Shangri La to Lhasa. We are now at an altitude of 3700m and so far are doing well. We were met by our guide Tensen who speaks with an Indian accent. Tensen was ...

    ... our fruit and veg instead. There was no mention of Tibet anywhere. No signs in Tibetan. The name nowhere. It was officially all China and the Chinese. The soldiers, the notices. Then up the hill and another stop, the stop where we remained for three long days and nights, green with many waterfalls crashing white water all around us.

    ... be fundamentally “less Tibetan” and more Chinese?

    At the core of Tibetan culture is their unique and very complex form of Buddhism. It is this religion that, I think, is their greatest source of resistance to “China-fication”. Having traveled much of the world, and still respecting how deeply religious so many other cultures are, I simply have never seen anything like the depth and strength of Tibetan Buddhism in the life and soul ...
