Lhasa, Tibet AR, 27/09/08 -
Seen on many market stalls were these hats:
I was a little taken aback, but now deeply regret not getting one.
We walked along the pilgrims' walk this morning and saw stupas and prayer stones and pray flags. You can see the cosmos in this picture, under the flags.
Even prayer yak skulls. And buddhas and bodhisattvas.
The carvings and flags and offerings made me feel bewildered. The sky made me feel prayerful.
