    ... to describe the colors between the water, clouds and mountains...greens, purples and blues of every shade. Picture tropical but colder hues. We met some horses and quite a few yak along the way and were a bit nervous after the fiasco Brian had, so we kept our eyes down, mouths shut and feet light!

    ... Potala was built, the Dollie (Dalai) Lama used to live here. The sect of Buddhism that the Dalai Lama belongs to was started here. At one time there were more than 10,000 monks living here. Now there is less than a thousand. This was the first monastery that we could take picture (for a price). I paid 20 yuan and thought it was for all of the chapels. It was just for the one we were in.
