    ... in control and not such good things . For instance, before 1950, there were no elementary schools. Now there is a school in every village. Before - the houses were small modest places that were handed down from generation to generation. Now, there are big high rise buildings. Many places to live! Many Chinese people are coming to Tibet to live - which certainly changes the complection of the place.

    ... as I was still suffering from a splitting headache from the night before. This was not helped by the ongoing aroma of melted yaks butter which was everywhere we went. As it had started raining, we walked quickly around the Barkhor circuit, clockwise of course, with the real devotees.

    ... Kitchen, which on entering I can see caters for tourists as it is full of them. We eat Tibetan style jiaozi (dumplings),called momo here, fried vegetables, and yak meat with potatoes in a broth. All pretty tasty.
