    This morning began with a walk to Potala palace. This is the iconic palace that one sees in most of the images of Tibet. The walk from the hotel took about 15 minutes and then we walked one Kora around the palace. The amount of people walking was unbelievable! There were hundreds of people walking around the palace. We also came to one spot where people were doing their morning dance. Again there were tons of people, of all ages, joining in. We also ...

    I have this funny memory of watching the ...

    ... with pushing my way through the crowds so I suggested they pick me up and throw me over instead! When we finally made it out our guide dashed to the office to get the ticket stamped and was relieved that we made it through in time. The palace didn't disappoint but it was a shame we were rushed through it felt ridiculous having to push your way through a tourist attraction and at £30 it wasn't cheap.

    ... Potala Palace which we had visited earlier in the day. So we took a wander along to see it lit up at night and it looked fabulous. The view from the monument located down and opposite the palace was much better than that which we had when we visited earlier and we were close up to the palace.
    Again this is where the passive attitude of our guide fails us. It's obviously not beyond us to realise that this palace might be lit up and that it might be worthy of a photo but ...
