I totally forgot to post these. Anyway, the last two weeks of my trip, I spent some time in Eastern Tibet with my boyfriend. We went to Kanding, which is where he's currently working, and Tagong, his hometown.
Wow, it was crazy! I spent a lot of time talking with his friends in Tibetan Buddhist monestaries and rode horses. And climbed mountains. And saw yaks. And learned a lot of Tibetan in Kanding bars. It was pretty awesome.
