Last day in Yushu. With nothing to do for the day I did some walking. In the morning I walked up the mountain side to where there is some Tibetan writing. It was done with white stones. Unfortunately I don't know what it says and I've found very few people here who can speak English so I can't ask anyone. It was lovely to sit and look out over the city. With the altitude here, 3300 metres (10,824 ft), it was a real struggle to get up there.
After lunch I went for a walk in the north-western part of the city. I found a huge prayer wheel, a chorten, some mani stones and a really big chorten that had again earthquake damage. This chorten was in a park which appeared to double up as a place for young people to go drinking beer, there were beer bottles everywhere.
The people here have been exceptionally friendly and I wish everyone in Yushu a prosperous future in their newly constructed city.
Enjoy the photos
