This is a small monastery in the
Tibetan quarter of Lhasa. It is convent. You can guess that it is the female, on
a large number of flower beds with flowers and flower pots on balconies. Nuns
weave trinkets made of wool and actively sell it their rare guests in their
shop. I now also have two small green balls - they are for something good.

In Lhasa, I bought a lot of good things: tanks (Buddhist icons, hand painted),
even one oil painting. The tanks were bought in a special shop, not very

tanks, including three very large. Now all these things must somehow pack, and
it's time to go on from Lhasa.
