    ... They began their religious education at the age of 8. Went to live in the monastery at the age of 13. A very modest life - no marriage, no worldly goods - just constant prayer. However, we did see some monks with iPhones and others with iPads. Wondering if they have relaxed their rules . . . :-).

    ... of the earth by burial or cremation. Even with vastly depleted numbers, monks are seemingly everywhere. Every town has at least one 'kora' (a pilgrim circuit) around a monastery, always clockwise.

    Our first sight of Lhasa was the staggering Potola palace, the home of the Dalai Lama (if he was allowed to live there…) We rolled past it on route to our hotel and it got the group excited to explore the mysterious city.
