We got a chance to sleep in a bit today as we didn't have to meet Tashi until 10:30. We had breakfast at the hotel restaurant again as it is included with our stay. Afterwards we did some laundry as it sounds like facilities will be very basic once we leave Lhasa and we still had some time that we could let it dry.

... sold almost as soon as they go on sale. As a result I had a worry about the small possibility of a conterfeit having ben sold so I really didnt want to risk changing tickets.
