... chant in front of the Buddha.

An interesting side note -- there is money everywhere. People put money into anything that they consider worthy. Different statues of lamas, of kings, of buddhas, or to the monks themselves. In order to take pictures indoors, I had to pay the resident monk between 10-20 yuan in each chapel. That's about $1.50 - $3.33 at the current exchange rate.

Moving from chapel to chapel and within the chapels meant climbing stairs and ...

... under cover, until you reach the entrance to the outer White Palace. The White Palace consists of the living quarters of the Lamas and surrounding offices and facilitating rooms. We felt giddy due to the combination of the altitude, the huge crowds squeezing through and the heady scent of incense and melting butter candles.

... connected to each others just from small paths, surrounded by pray wheels. One, bigger and red, stood out in the middle: it's the one where Dalai Lama use to meditated. Now we understand why Dalai Lama got the enlightenment, in a peaceful place like that! The only problem, and that's also maybe why these kind of meditation isn't for everybody, was the altitude. At that point you are at 4880m and, we can assure you, do all that steps at that altitude is ...

... 1. We continued on to Norbulinka, a the largest city park in Tibet with several of the summer palaces of various Dalai Lamas from the 8th to the current (14th). It was interesting to see the various change in furniture styles. In the summer palace of the 13th, there were quite a few vehicles, including a tricycle, wheelchair, and horse buggies. In the summer palace of the 14th, there were sitting rooms, a bedroom, and bathroom with running water. Some of the ...
