Drepung Monastery Went to Drepung monastery which was the biggest before the Chinese initiated the Cultural revolution.

It was also the Admin HQ of the Dalai lamas. Bought items for Sinha. Lunch at the hotel. At 1500hrs, we left for the carpet factory.Too costly. Back on a cycle rikshaw by 1800 hrs. Dinner, apparently by invitation from CTMA, was at Hotel Summit Camp.

Had Vodka.
