Tibet – the highland in China

Longing to visit Tibet for the past 20 years and I finally got a chance to be there in April…

My original target was only the Potala Palace in Lhasa given that it’s the most famous place in Tibet.  Surprisingly, I’ve found there are a lot of natural beauties around areas like Linzhi: the blossom of peach trees, the thousand years glacier, the snow mountains, the lakes, just to name a few.

The Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, the religious centre of Tibet is a must go for us to understand how Tibetan worship their gods!

Last but not the least, we visited the Potala Palace, the centre of power in Tibet…  There are too many things we can learn from this palace, it’s history, it’s art, it’s culture, it’s precious collections, it’s religious background, it’s architecture…

You can only be there to taste it… 🙂

 

Nepal – a Colorful Country

Last month, I visited Nepal for just eight days…  This mountain country impressed me a lot…   Even though the country is not rich comparing to the modern developed world, I’ve found the people there are very positive and cheerful.  The earthquake last year hit them hard, the rebuild process is still ongoing, yet there are smiles on people’s faces.

No matter they are young or old, rich or poor, they wear cheerful colors.  It’s a colorful country…:)

This might be because of their religion…  In Nepal, 70% of the people are Hindu and the rest are mainly in Tibetan Buddhism.  People worship early in the morning before dawn and you can find places for people to pray and worship everywhere on the street.

May God bless the people in Nepal…  Always happy, always cheerful, always colorful!
