When I had come back from dinner late last night, and started going through the 300+ photographs I had taken in the mountains (most of them with yaks on them), I realized that there was no way that I would continue walking and post a journal today.
So I stayed.
Sometime in the afternoon I went out into the world of the living:
Although this particular scene should have rather been called the world of the drinking – at 15:22 in the afternoon.
Of course I didn’t join in on the fun, instead I went looking for some noodles for a late lunch:
Then I visited Huazang Temple 华藏寺, a Lama place of worship in the center of Tianzhu that had been reconstructed numerous times during the last century:
It was nice to look at anyway:

He does this every day:
I sat there watching, and the place was really quiet and I could hear the monk’s steps and his mumbling prayers when he went past:
Guess how many circles he completed today?
You’re right: two hundred.
