We had to practically empty all 4 of our carry-on bags until they said we were okay (Chinese security when traveling to Tibet is much more stringent than American). Then, at another security checkpoint, they reviewed our Tibet Travel Permits, passports and boarding passes, for what seemed like an eternity.

This after, in the morning, I'd watched, with a mixture of horror and amazement, as a senior teacher smacked children round the face and pulled their hair.
