... walks it clockwise, except the only white couple I see today. During our noodles dinner we are still discussing the history of Tibet and the Dalai Lama. There is a lot I want to read this winter. Observation: - In Sieben Jahre in Tibet, Harrer describes how they are saved one night in the mountains, by a woman, who has two husbands. This phenomenon still exists in the country side.

A bit like that feeling when you're doing the Beep Test in primary school and you think you're going to die as you do your final sprint, like that, but 100x worse! It took us 3 days to completely recover from the Altitude Sickness which consisted of a combination of shortness of breath, insomnia, headaches and surprisingly diarrhea!
