    ... hope it will help with this cold or whatever it is that I have. We also purchased a local herbal treatment for altitude adjustment. I have more natural herbs in me now! I am hoping they don't interfere with my medication. The people were fabulous. They were so friendly and helpful. People on the street smile at you, unlike mainland China.

    The crux of all of this for me is seeing the people in tattered clothes taking the money they begged for all day and walking up the same steps as I to literally throw that money at a sacred carving or painting or statue. I know that enlightenment is beyond money but can anyone tell me that happiness isn’t easier to find when you can afford food and clean water for your children?

    The guide (I feel bad because I forgot his name) drove me a little through downtown Lhasa and then to the place that I'm staying, called Namchen House and run by the person who set up the entirety of my tour in Tibet, Dho Kho. After carrying my things to my room, I rested for a small moment, and then met Dho Kho himself, who was extremely nice and helpful. At about 6:30, I ...
