    ... along with many Tibetan Buddhists) via stairs and ladders and the view of Gyantse and its djong was great.

    From there we started the drive to Shigatse, the 2nd largest city in Tibet with a population of about 100,000. It is only 58 miles, but took us about 3 hours to get there. The speed limits in some areas are as low as 19 miles per hour. And there are numerous police stops where they check how fast it has taken you to get ...

Shigatse was our stop for the night as I required a special stamp for my permit to go to EBC. We arrived at Shigatse around 6pm and Sze Fu went to the police station to get my stamp.

    ... the hotel we took a wrong turn. Since all the signs are in Tibetan/Chinese we were quite lost very quickly. Streets looked right, then wrong. Shops looked familiar, then strange.
