Exiting the building you climb down another staircase and are gradually immersed back into the reality of this noisy city. Crossing the main road we walked to the main square of Lhasa to take some photographs with the palace in the background. Doing so we passed another surreal site, that of several old Tibetan ladies dressed in traditional clothes kowtowing in the direction of the palace. They had positioned themselves beside a tourist lake with several plastic peddle boats floating around behind them. Another example of the proximity of two completely different worlds, and an illustration of what makes Lhasa so special.
