9月24日 拉薩

出行這些天來,今天精神最好,便乘503號中巴去色拉寺逛了大半天,逃票不遂,付了50大元門票,不過看到辨經,又免費拍了照,也就算了。另,辨經中一和尚頗俊...

佩及菁從納木措回來,晚飯一起吃,充當餞行。

其餘無事可記。

宿:八郎學,40元單人間,公共廁浴


Images captions (from top to bottom):

1. Sera is a "university" monastery, famous for it's daily debate scene, which is opened to public. The brown colored metal barrels in the image are prayer wheels. Each turn of the wheel symbolize reciting the prayer, engraved on the wheel, once.

2. Lhasa is nicknamed "sunlit city" for the way-above-average sunlight it receives annually. The image shows just one of the ways the solar power is used in everyday life. I have seen such setup in both sedentary and nomadic households.

3. Colorful and "cute" beddings for monks

4. debating monk 1 (the handsome one)

5. debating monk 2

6. debating monk 3
