Tibet, Roof of the World, we are back once again. After meeting up yesterday in Chengdu, an average-size city of 8-10 million people in southwestern China, the group flew to Lhasa together today. Tibet's capital city is situated at an elevetion of 3,700 meters, where the air is thin, and not even our lucky scarfs could prevent that slight headache that haunted some of us during the evening.
After dinner we went for a little walk, past one of the most iconic buildings in the world: the Potala Palace. Words cannot describe our feelings as we stood in front of it, it really is THAT spectacular! Tomorrow we are going to have a look at the inside - if we can manage the steep climb... we'll keep you posted!
