    ... 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 ...

He had missed a lot of the 'fun' so far and seemed determined to do something with his afternoon whilst the remainder of us were all erring towards a bit of a nap! At the third or fourth time of asking Annie and I took the hint and agreed to go to a museum on the other side of the city with him.

    ... by the 20s when sati was abolished, and a few rich of Kathmandu had piped water and electricity, the majority, over 90%, continued to live in a feudal state.

    ... see any Tibetan monks at Potala Palace, I saw plenty at Sera Monestry. Jokhang temple was worth a visit as well. The smell of incense and yak oil was overpowering as we wandered around the dark corridors of the temple. Steep wooden steps led us to the rooftop of the temple, where we replaced our incense filled lungs with fresh air while looking out to the stream of pilgrims and Chinese soldiers below us.                ...
