I leave for Lhasa on Saturday.
That's something I never thought I'd have the opportunity to say. Like, who ever goes to Tibet, right? TIBET, for cripes sake!
I had to get a special visa to go since Tibet is officially an autonomous region of China, but it was a fairly painless process - the tour company took care of all the paperwork - so I'm all set.
I can't wait to see yaks & prayer flags & monks & mountains & stars & pagodas & throngs of tourists!
