To GyurMaster: hard choice

Thank you György,

Malgo, I apologize for being too fast. I saw your comment before I read the note and thought you had misunderstood the facts.

Hello Malgo,

To jean113: maybe monk

Thank you Jean,
Since I don't remember this man at all, or the colour of his clothes, I don't know if he was a monk, but I wouldn't rule it out, although most monks attached to a monastery usually...

To emka: Poor man's Potala

Thank you Malgo,
Yes, it looks like there has been some restoration work done since 1985. At least they seem to have repaired the windows (as we will do at our house this spring, which will cause a...

To Tue: bönekvarn

Tack Lars,
På svenska heter det bönekvarn, så det är ju precis samma som bedemøllle.
Trevlig helg,

To mcmtanyel: not really a hotel

Thanks Murat,
As I wrote in the note this was not really a hotel in the Western sense, just a small restaurant (and not at all bad; I had several nice meals there). It is a peculiarity of India and...

Thank you John for your kind words.
Of course I don't know anything about these two men, but I wouldn't be surprised if they met every day. In many parts of the world greetings are like ceremonies...

Mariusz, of course you are referring to me as "one of the TE members". But what the hell do you know about me? How dare you call me narrow-minded and claim that I don't travel with an open mind? You...

I think you are more exposed to possible terrorists or any kinds of criminals if you travel in a group on a tour arranged by a tourism company. I always travel on my own, using local transports, and...
