Great Location, Quality of Rooms Poor

The hotel was right in the middle of Lhasa, situated only 50m away from the Jokhang square which was an excellent location and not very expensive with a double room for 200 rmb.

The building is quite run down and the quality of the rooms differs significantly. We stayed for 9 nights and have stayed at several rooms. First room was fine with only a non-functional window lock, second room didn't have a working shower and a broken toilet and in the third room the sink wasn't working properly with a broken bathtub meaning a bathroom flood every morning.

So overall conclusion, location is excellent however the hotel and rooms are badly maintained and run down. We would recommend first carefully inspecting the room before accepting it!

Lost in Tibet

... keeping the streets I walked in order in my mind, and went quite far from the hotel, probably two or three miles or so. After over an hour I decided to turn back, but somehow I made a critical error and probably walked a mile beyond where I should have turned onto another street. Tired now, hot, plus my heart was racing from the lack of oxygen, nothing looked familiar and I didn't know what other street to take. Of course I didn't have a ...

... with (most) of my tour mates... At least there's always a silver lining to these stories! Nepal was awaiting us, and we were ready for what was in store! So, that's all for now. I am trying to condense these entries, but apparently I like to tell my stories in detail! There are worse things... Right?! More entries to come soon! Until then... Ta ta for now. Love you all like a fly on yak poop! (And let me tell you...) lol :) Namaste... and Beyond! Xoxoxo This little traveler ...

Departure from Tibet

For some reason, high altitude has resulted in some rather odd dreams and I spent a restless night because of them, but eventually it was time to get up, shower, dress, pack and then repack when various overlooked items, such as a shirt I washed the previous evening hanging in the bathroom, were discovered. We went down to breakfast, couldn't find any spoons, refused the cold fried eggs thrust at us and then managed to get what we needed ...

... any sensitive reading material because it would be confiscated at the border. My second thought was 'wow'; the airport is on a spectacular flat plain surrounded by stunning mountains (bleak brown rather than snow covered at this time of year). My third thought was 'how clean'; the India we saw was mostly dusty and litter strewn (a slightly harsh generalisation but not far from the truth) and Nepal was similar but on a slightly less dusty and less litter strewn scale. Lhasa ...

... which all have slightly different meanings. A curled up hand here, an extra set of heads there, Ganesh rides on a rat, Tara is the god of Women and is pictured in 3 states- green, white and red, all representing different aspects of her character. The 3 Buddhas "past", "present" and "future" all gave us a laugh, as Fiona constantly misidentified the statues, much to our guides amusement. It was a future Buddha pendant ...
