What a beautiful people
The first days we spend in Lhasa to acclimatize to the high altitude. We can notice that we are an altitude of 3600 meter when we walk up a stair. At the top we are out of breath for a while and we have to take it easy. My mother has a little headache but it disappears soon. Lhasa is great. The small alleys around the Jokhjang Temple are full of Tibetans. Tibetans from all over Tibet are walking around the temple clockwise with their praying wheels. From early in the morning till late in the evening you hear the ‘Um ma ne padne um'. The people are beautiful with their big smiles, their colorful bracelets and their clothes.
