Because China insists that all of China be on the same time zone, even though we went through two time zones to get to Tibet, it means that it remains darker here in the morning. Therefore, we slept in till 7:30! The bus didn't leave till 9:30 so had plenty of time to shower, dress, and have breakfast. Minshan Hotel is pretty new and we were the first Western tour group to stay here so breakfast was sketchy. I was OK with a small bowl of Cheerios, but Terry wanted ...

Prayer Flags...

A travel blog entry by chopsticks on Jul 22, 2014

I don't even know where to begin with this amazing day...I journaled on the way up and really do not know if I have the energy to write it all down here. Right now I am in a 'hut' up at the roof of the world. We were at 7200 meters but are now at 4500. The hut is funky and cool...you will have to see pics. The view out my window is one of the mountain tops with prayer flags flying from the top, but I can't see ours from here. Each person in the group got a set of prayer flags and ...

... with pushing my way through the crowds so I suggested they pick me up and throw me over instead! When we finally made it out our guide dashed to the office to get the ticket stamped and was relieved that we made it through in time. The palace didn't disappoint but it was a shame we were rushed through it felt ridiculous having to push your way through a tourist attraction and at £30 it wasn't cheap. The Potala Palace was the main residence of the Dalai Lama ...

... was sad to hear their version.

On the contrary we asked our (wonderful) tibetan guide Tenzin about what happened in March 2008. He said he was in his house in Lhasa "on that day" and everybody stayed inside but they could hear the guns. When we asked him how many monks were killed that day he answered looking at the ground " A lot.". It was heartbreaking to see him whisper (we were in the street at that moment) and ...

Standing on the Roof of the World

... it was wonderful. This is the reason I came here. However, there is one rather prominent eye sore throughout Lhasa—a Chinese military occupation. We were told by our guides—a number of times—not to photograph, or record in any way, the guards who march throughout the city in small groups with sizable weapons slung over shoulders. I was told that a few nights in jail is the price for taking their picture. Actually it was hard not to take their picture ...
