    ... tea. This is a tea made with yak butter, some spices, milk, and black tea. To me it tasted like melted butter with some milk added. I drank the cup but I am not a fan. It is supposed to help with the altitude but I could feel my arteries crying out.

    We had an early lunch as our check out time at Potola Palace was 1:20. That means we had to be done at the Top by that time. The stairs are set up in switchbacks up the side of the mountain. The stairs were ...

    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 ...

There were also many Chinese brand shops that looked every bit the modern part all intertwined with snack shops banks a couple of supermarkets and butchers. I particularly like the butchers as they displayed Yak legs still ...

    Hi All,

    At the end of the last blog, I had mentioned that we were headed to Tibet, which was promising to be the highlight of the trip. I had been there before in ’96 and was blown away by how other-worldly the place was. Like no other place I’ve ever seen, Tibetan life is completely dominated by
    Buddhism: you see monks and nuns everywhere, prayer flags line every building, and almost every woman walks around with a hand-held prayer ...

    ... and stomping it down with sticks, all the time keep up the responsive singing. Kind of like Tibetan line dancing. On each press gang there is both a girl's team and a boy's team which take it in turns to outdo each other, and it seems it's far more successful at resulting marriages than any contrived TV show.

    Well I think that I've now aclimatised to this altitude of 3600m, so tomorrow it must be time to go up to 5000m - yep that's 5km above sea level. Wish me ...
