    ... some difficulty getting through security. We had to practically empty all 4 of our carry-on bags until they said we were okay (Chinese security is much more stringent than American). Then, at another security checkpoint, they reviewed our Tibet Travel Permits, passports and boarding passes, for what seemed like an eternity. Again, everything was in order, so we were allowed onboard. Fortunately, both flights were uneventful. Our second ...

    ... it is to get back to sea level, and it is a pity to say it but we are starting to feel that way now. If you stay up here long enough I think you largely get used to it, but I am not sure it has good long-term effects physically on the body, especially the heart. Generally my resting heart rate is just above 60 beats per minute. As I write it is 71.

Tibet is not an easy place to visit, tourists must have a special permit (as well as their Chinese visa), hire a guide and private vehicle & driver and stick to a pre-agreed itinerary. Once there, there are numerous checkpoints, roadblocks, and crazy speed checks (by taking your time at point A and then at point B) ...

    ... see how these people are sensitive and great in all what they do, even without seeing. Once we were done, it was already time for dinner and, this time, we decided to go for something a bit more turistic but being sure of what we were eating. We tried Makye Ame, a very good and nice restaurant around Jokhang temple where you could find tibetan, nepalese, indian cuisine and even something more international like soups. Food was good and a lot, as always, and we ...

    China, unexpectedly

    Thursday the 19 th was the first official day of the tour. Actually, all that was happening was a meeting at 6 p.m., so the day was free. Surprisingly enough, I feel no jet lag. 7 a.m. feels more or less like 0700. Gynes was my roommate and he was unhappy on a couple of fronts, firstly, because he'd paid for a private and had to bunk in for a night. Secondly, and more importantly, because his bicycle hadn't arrived. We survived, though, and after a delicious and wide ...
