Making Lemonade. With Damion stable in the hospital, our Lhasa emergency relaxed a bit and we were able to continue exploring this amazing city. There are so many things to see here and at the top of the list is the Potala Palace.
Chimi arranged transportation and we headed over to the Palace to get our minds blown by it’s incomprehensible awesomeness. I had been talking up the Potala to the group for days and everyone was very excited to see it.
Of course, upon our arrival we discovered that it was closed to visitors for the day.
Chimi didn’t skip a beat and immediately suggested that we head on over to the Tsamkhung Nunnery not far from the Jokhang Temple. I’d been to many monasteries but never to a nunnery so it sounded like a great idea.
We arrived at Tsamkhung and we immediately greeted by the sound of many nuns chanting. We were the only tourists in sight and were allowed to explore at our leisure.
The small campus was beautiful and very peaceful. As usual, the monastic culture was so welcoming and open.
It was a wonderful afternoon. I only which Damion was here to see it.
