People along the way are so friendly.
As we pass through the vilages in our big orange truck, all the locals are so excited and waving.
Hmmm big orange trucks with whiteys mustnt pass through here often!
Stopped in the truck at Nepal-Tibetan border. Headed for Zhangmu. The roads here are crazy - narrow muddy and rocky with no sides.
Crossed the border - took awhile. Dan and I looked after the bags and played cards while we were waiting for the otheers to have lunch.Then we had mixed noodles - so yum.
Tibetan Prayer flags drapped all across the gorge. Its so cool. Makes everything so beauiful and colourful....and just cool.
Going higher and higher.
Went for walk in the afternoon in Zhangmu. Rooms are quite nice, but into squat toilet territory now....ones that dont fdlush...mmmm
Head getting a bit spacey with the altitude.
Food is amazing - salty, sweet and sour...(Ants)
Xiang Piaou - Going up to higher altitude. Getting into the real Tibet now.
Very different from the green country side of Nepal.
Steph and I are rocking the Tibetan hairstyle of one plait wrapped around head. PRETTY. NICe. DIFFERENT.
Hot and sour soup for lunch. Yumba.
