Sonam has not shared the story of her sons father and we haven't asked but she told us that she would not look for another partner, because, he might want to have his own children and he would not let her care for her own son if they did. She is a modern Tibetan woman and an exception to the rule even by western standards. We had dinner at a local Restaurant named Tashi - which is the 3rd Tashi we've eaten at, it must mean good food! The owner was Nepalese so ...

We made a pit stop at a traditional water powered mill where they were grinding barley into powder for the making of tsampo - the Tibetan breakfast staple. We even took a "rest" stop at a Tibetan Mastiff zoo, so as not to arrive at a checkpoint too soon. That place was pretty depressing with about ...

        Shigatse is the second largest city in Tibet and by some
        measures the second highest city in the world at 3,850 meters (about 12,800
        feet) after Potosi, Bolivia. That depends, of course, on just how you define a
        city. Shigatse is the main city of the Tibet’s Tsang region and used to be a
        rival of Lhasa for political control of the country.

        The Tashilhunpo Monastery in Shigatse is one of the six main

        That evening, our tour guide brought us out on the town to sample some of the, um, interesting night life that occurs in Shingatse. The entertainment ranged from local pop music enhanced by music videos that, while I am sure they have been recently made, ...

Last time I got lucky going to Namsto lake as they were police check points and there were so many of us. This time was different, there are at least 2 military check points we had to pass and they don't mess around! When we got to the hotel, we continued to brain storm ideas and a few phone calls were made to the travel agent to find out why they hadn't got the appropriate permits etc. At ...
