|Devout Tibetans spend hours a day spinning a|
prayer wheel, a metal cylinder on a handle with
a small weight attached. Inside is a scroll with
Buddhist prayers, and they believe that by spinning
the wheel, prayers are sent out automatically.
|Morning incense at Jokhang Temple, the holiest|
temple in all of Tibet.
|Some pilgrims prostrate themselves all the way to|
the temple, up and down, moving only feet at a time.

towns to Lhasa.

Hot Pot and yak meatballs. I really don't think
anyone in our group will miss Tibetan food.
