The day after Thanksgiving is not exactly a holiday in China. That said, the cafe staff in Beijing did make up for their botching of the holiday the day earlier by serving turkey with all the traditional trimmings. When I say traditional trimmings I mean thin pancakes, green onions and plum sauce. That's right, Peking turkey. The joke that I was making the day earlier came to fruition in the most literal way.
More Tibet. These photos are in Lhasa. This day we went to the Jokhang one of the most holy places for pilgrims in Tibet. It was pretty intense inside. Lots of pilgrims, yak butter and incense. After a quick look around we headed for the roof which was a little quieter and we were allowed to take photos....
Things are busy getting the transition going for my replacement in Beijing but I did manage to fit in some video game time with Allan today and beat Halo 3. It was pretty rad. I also uploaded some photos to the picasaweb album of Laos today and some others from Cambodia the other day.
Off to bed.
