    André avait bien raison: le Tibet sera un joyau de la couronne de mon voyage, mais ce sera éprouvant... Mais quelle récompense! Tashl est venu me chercher à 9 heures ce matin et, avec le chauffeur, nous nous sommes rendus sur la Grande Place aux pieds du Potala. C'était déjà très impressionnant. Puis nous nous sommes présentés à l'entrée du Palais en accompagnant sur quelques mètres les pélerins qui faisaient, pour certains 7 fois, pour d'autres 11 fois, le tour ...

    We left Lhasa for Ganden Monastery at 9am in a 4WD. Ganden was the first Gelugpa monastery. This was founded by Tsongkhapa in 1409. Ganden was heavily destroyed including the magnificent tomb of Tsongkhapa but his disciples have rebuilt a replica- which resembles the original in every way. We first walked around the monastery where the view of the Kyi-Chu valley was spectacular and you would come across some prayer flags along the way. There was a ...

    ... to Ganden Monastery. Crossing the Kyi river we took a very pleasant journey over mostly new roads and bypassing the construction of brand new roads and bridges. It's clear that the Chinese are intent on redeveloping Lhasa into an identikit Chinese city. Most of our route skirted the Himalayas which rose above us at 5,500m. At about the 40km mark we took a hard right and headed up the mountain to Ganden Monastery at the top. One of the three great monasteries ...

    ... protests against the Chinese government took place. Tourism has been very closely monitored every since, which is obvious by the stares we get everywhere we go. We've only seen a dozen or so Westerners around the sites.

    After the temple, we wandered through the Tibetan markets and then ventured back to the hotel.
    Quite an experience!

    Now, off to the champaign reception in the lobby.

    We start the temple and monastery visiting today. First, Jokhang, the largest temple in Lhasa. The incense fumes are unbelievable, I nearly choke to death. Outside the temple there are hundreds of people prostrating (chucking themselves on the floor for want of a better description - it's a Buddhist thing). Inside the temple there are queues and queues of people and they're all carrying bags and bottles of something that ...
