We made it to Tibet! Yesterday was our first day in Lhasa and we spent it wandering Barkhor Street and the area outside Jokhang Temple and just getting ourselves acclimated to the high altitude. So far, just a few headaches and a little trouble sleeping (which apparently is a mild symptom of altitude sickness). I’m not sure if it is the lack of oxygen or just this place but I instantly felt peaceful once we arrived. Rob, of course, thinks this is all in my head — he also said what he thought was altitude sickness may just be his spiritual awakening so you never know with Bobby. But I think there is something magical about this place. The people, the sights, the smells…everything is different and beautiful here.
