    ... Takes only 5 minutes on a hot summer day! Then we rode about an hour to Lhasa - stopped at a hotel for lunch - and then continued on to our hotel! We drank three full bottles of water on the way . . Which required bathroom stops! :-)
    Our guide suggested that one particular Happy House we stopped at was not a five star Happy House. I discovered why. There were individual stalls but no flush. Only a trough which ran ...

    ... her name up.

    Given a run down of what's what in the 1 hour bus ride to Thangka Hotel and given the rest of the day free time to adjust to the altitude. Forgot how badly it hits you.
