... a little confused to see that passengers had arrived on a plane and were just sitting down. Eventually there was an announcement in Chinese, repeated in faint English, saying that our flight was to boarding. The plane was not very big, but people kept on coming so we wondered how everyone would fit in, but eventually we took off after a very long run on the ground because of the thin air. We did not get a window seat and the young woman ...

... to Lhasa, which made two lanes going the same way. All fine and good until there WAS oncoming traffic and then it was a game of chicken and hoping everyone was courteous and moved over.

The wait didn't help my nerves which, at this point, was starting to give me a little anxiety. Finally this guy shows up... in a beaten up 3rd world old farmer truck! Perfect vehicle for this mission. The three of us sit for a bit and I go over some questions and ask ...

... we found Tashi and our driver and headed out to the Sera monastery. We didn't spend as much time going through the temples as the main attraction at this monastery is watching the monks debate in the courtyard. It was really interesting to watch, there was around 100 monks where all split up into smaller groups of 4-5.
