India 2004 Part 5


2/20/04

Today we went to the International Affairs Office to get my media pass. I was able to get one because they received the fax my mom sent. We then headed to the Norbulingka Institute. Which was a good 2-3 mile walk. Then we took a bus for 20-25 minutes. Except we missed our stop and had to walk back to it. At the institute there were many monks. The little ones were so cute. We went and saw the monastery with butter sculptures, tapestries, and deities. It was a very colorful place to visit. Read More

This morning Tenzin and I decided to do some laundry. The water was sooo cold, but that was because we lost power last night, because of a thunder storm. The power later came back on this morning. So we washed our clothes with soap and really cold water. It took us an hour and a half. Ha ha ha. And some of it didn’t finish drying. And my ankles hurt so much because I washed my clothes like this. Read More

Well Tenzin’s butter sculpture came out pretty well. It had flowers on it and too fish, one was skinny and the other one was fat. Kind of like that. Anyway I woke up at around 3 a.m. this morning, I have no idea why though. Although it could do with the fact that I took a 3 hour nap yesterday. Tenzin got up at 2:15 a.m. so both of us are just sitting here. We did some reading and then we played go fish, and something else because those are the only card games we know. Read More

View from the roof of our hostel.

I woke up when I heard the monks cleaning outside of our room. I threw off my blankets and sleeping bag because I was so hot. My neck hurt really bad because of the way I slept on it. Oh well. Tenzin’s mom called at about 6:30 a.m. and we woke up to a monk pounding on the door. After she got off the phone with her we went and looked outside. You can see the Himalayas, it is so beautiful and it is a nice fresh smell in the air. Read More

We arrived at the airport in Delhi at about 3 a.m. Tenzin and I were worried when we didn’t see her uncle, so she asked another Tibetan family about something and said we could wait with them. The father of the family found Tenzin’s uncle who had been waiting outside for us since 1 a.m. How horrible! But at least things worked out. We arrived at a monastery guesthouse where we got our things together and headed down to breakfast. Read More
