    ... to meet my guide to do the pilgrim circuit at Jokhang Temple. My guide ends up being a no show and with the owner of my tour unable to locate him I set off again on my own.

    ... the grand Tashilompo Monastery, home of the controversial Panchen Lama (I shouldn’t say more as I will be posting this from China), second in importance to only the Dalai Lama.

    ... on without it and it tasted nowhere near as good. In a way the bobi reminds me a bit of the times of have made cold rolls in vietnamese restuarants.

    From here wandered to the bus stop for the bus to Sera Monastary. Main reason for coming here was the monk debate and there were definately a lot of monks around the grounds.
