Farewell Walkabout

A travel blog entry by kimm

Our last day in Lhasa today, so we walked around taking in Lhasa life one last time. I wanted to take some pictures, because there are a lot of typically Tibetan things and a lot of craftsmen toiling away in the smallest workshops. In the end though, I just breathed it in. My amateur pictures would not have done justice to the life and people here …

A travel blog entry by dj-travelblog09
