    ... then caught some shuteye at 4 AM for a couple more hours. Not optimum sleep, but better than nothing.

    After our usual Asian/Western breakfast we were ready for the principal reason we were in Lhasa -- to visit Potala Palace. This is an enormous building that is built high on a hilltop. It was originally built by Songtsan Gampo in the 7th century and part of that original building still remains. The majority of the building was constructed in the mid 1600's ...

    ... beer so we moved on again. Then we found a completely empty bar which only had warm beer available. But, excited at the prospect of infinitely multiplying his customer numbers (from naught to six!), the barman insisted we wait whilst he went and found us some cold ones. Five minutes later he returned with some more warm ones! When our resident beer temperature tester, Stephen pointed out his error, without missing a beat, the barman responded, 'Warm beer is much better for ...
