More from Lhasa

buddhist college

Got another couple of photos iPhone'd to me from Tibet. Of the above, Bob says:
This is the Mongolian Budhist "college" at a big monastery complex just outside of Lhasa. Once it held 5,000 monks. Today, 750.

You may not be able to read the name of the place below in red neon without clicking for a larger version. It's the Cool Yak Hotel, where only the coolest of yaks stay. It's apparently all about the yaks there. Saw a facebook status from my dad (yes, we're facebook friends) about nan with yak butter being delicious. Another wacky sign spotting, sadly undocumented, was the Lovely Cowboy Happy Restaurant. I'll leave you with one more piece of Lhasa flair, seen on the wall of a restaurant:

24 hours in a day.
24 beers in a case.
I think not.
