at last with my backpack , that never left Helsinki.
37 degrees and - obviously - humid on landing , but feels less. Quick shower and drying under the ceiling fan.
Lots of food (shabalay , momos, phing) and lots of languages in the dining room of Wongdhen House : English , Tibetan , Nepali and French to start with.
Thenthuk in the small square outside the temples , this year with awnings. Communal dining area , prayer chantings and kids just running and screaming. No photos taken , people made me feel invited and after that it stayed down . The kids took some photograhs though.
Todays Tibetan word : Tinda ! Look !
