on our way back from the monastery we witnessed the rehearsal of a whole school for a coming festival. dancing to traditional tibetan music in the schoolyard.
in the evening we met in tashi’s restaurant to celebrate laura’s birthday. our guides organized the birthday cake and khatags, the traditional tibetan scarf.
it was a nice evening and necessary as well when traveling with such a big group that spends so much time together. the next day it was followed by a snowball fight as we reached the last pass before lhasa.
in the days to come we will explore the administrative capital of the tibet autonomous region.
