    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. However, it being the middle of December and not many people wanting to venture north at that time of year, coupled with the fact that the border pass was closed due to ...

    ... 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. She spoke of the same topic with sorrow in her voice. It's not so much that people don't need the Dalai Lama, it's with the ever pushing Chinese influence or push for change there is no role for him within their society anymore.

    The tea house was well full so Jigme took us to another.

    Tea houses are rather like a communal dining room. They are made up of long tables with bench seating. Hot milky tea is served from a thermos and people sit around talking and drinking. No food is served. Begging by young children was rife in the tea house.

    They were happy with anything even to fill their glass with tea which we chose as an alternative to money.

    ... damage!

    We finally arrived in Lhasa an hour earlier than expected. We packed our belonging carefully and waited for the eager beavers to climb over themselves to exit the train. We took some celebratory photos of the train platform to prove we actually got here and headed for the exit line.

    ... mystifying and fascinating regions of the world. Locked away, high up in the vast Himalayas, it has captured the minds and imaginations of many, both east and west. Being spellbound by the magnificent scenery on the way in from the airport my guide tells me that Tibet is referred to as the real Shangri-La, the forbidden land, the roof of the world and the holy land of your innermost desire!!!

    Bit of a bonus as I'm sure we were booked ...
