Today we went to visit the Potala Palace which is huge and impressive! It's not used for much anymore and you can only go in parts of it, but it is well preserved.

After the Potala, we ate a quick lunch of yak noodle soup in a cave cafe and then we went to the Sera Monastery which is famous for their debating monks.

Slooow internet - details and photos to follow soon

It's a long climb up with zig zags, but we used the view as an excuse to stop, take a photo, and catch our breath
