    ... hill behind the monastery where we were given a view of a smaller version of the Potala Palace in Lhasa. This one had been recently built within the last five years but it sits empty as they decide what to do with it. As we walked around we could see the whole city, including the Friendship highway that runs through it. This highway actually goes from Shanghai, via Lhasa, to the Nepal border.

    ... itself is quite and ugly Chinese city, with only a tiny Old Town hidden away. I don't think I have ever been greeted more times with a "hello" and a smile than I have in Tibet, but here especially.

    After a peaceful sleep in a very basic but cosy guest house a stones throw from the monastery I woke early; it was still pitch black. As I wondered outside to find the cupboard with a hole in the ground, which was standard in Tibet serving as the toilet, I was struck with the beauty of the sky.
