Day 9: Lhasa again

We've made it back to Lhasa with no one getting hurt, no major damage to the bikes and no major incidents with the local authorities. An accomplishment. We arrived early afternoon and made a "parade" lap around the Potala Palace, the major landmark in downtown Lhasa. Once complete we lined up for pictures in front of the palace. Once finished we headed for the hotel and then off to the local internet cafĂ©' which caters to American and other foreign tourists with great coffee and free wifi.  Sitting in the big comfy chairs we shared stories and favorite moments and checked our email. Something we probably won't take for granted again. The rides finished we all felt the accomplishment and a small sense of disappointment that it had ended.
