    Overland from Kathmandu to Lhasa then by train across China - who wouldn't want to do that?

    So despite the cost being way out of my travel budget, I started hunting around for the best deal to join a group of travellers Tibet-bound.

    ... ever come back and when this one dies there will be no new incarnation. The Dalai Lama was recently in Vancouver and I understand that he spoke of how the people no longer need him in Tibet.

    We visited the Potala Palace this morning; spelled Po-TAH-la but also pronounced Po-TOE-la.

    But first, a weather flash: Last night it rained - the first rain we've experienced - and the mountains surrounding Lhasa are now snow-capped with the first snow of the year.
