Today we went to the Jokhang monastary!

It was an experience with all of the devoted buddhist praying over + over.  Pouring yak butter into candles/bowls.

Then we went to the Potala palace!  It’s so big and the history of the Dali Lamas is emense ..  It’s hard to believe the history goes back thousands of years!

Felt the effects of altitude sickness and took a nap.

Were meant to see Tibetan opera/performance but it was cancelled so went bargaining at the Barkhor markets.  Then ate at Dicos! (Tibetan fast food [KFC core])
