    ... what has happened to Tibet, but just little snippets, like the fact the money given by pilgrims at the Potala Palace goes the the government and the monks there are employed by the government. Some people have put him in slightly difficult situations by asking ill-timed questions, like, why was there military personnel at the monasteries... right in front of a soldier...

    He is a very good guide, and smiles constantly. We like both our Chinese and ...

    ... have not already included a visit a few weeks prior. However, this retreat is a truly enjoyable place to stay and a second stopover was something I did not mind, along with another opportunity to hurl myself off the bridge on either the bungy jump or canyon swing.

    Fast forward to the final part of our tour, and there I was again, strolling out onto the bridge, of which the walkway is an open grid that allows you a view straight down or more/less compels you to stare at ...

    ... we got there late but Drujal ordered us some beef soup. It was absolutely awesome. It was ground beef and green onions in a curry broth and it came with steamed buns that you could use to soak up the broth. So good. We have another early morning tomorrow as we make our way to Rombuk, near Everest base camp. Depending on our arrival time and the weather, we may make the hike to base camp either in the afternoon or the next morning. We will be spending the next few days at >5000m. ...
