In Tibet I learned that if you fight against the tea waitress, you can actually get your food. I had lunch with a bunch of delighted flies (I was not as delighted). I caught taxis without really know what I was doing, but I didn't get lost. I took tons of selfies. I listened to entire conversations in Chinese without understanding a word and I realized that sometimes ignorance plays in your favour. I saw a glacier standing in the rain, the milky way sitting on the ground and the tallest mountain in the world because I was late. One night I felt rich in my hotel room, another I felt poor in a shared tent and low hygiene standards. I learned that (options given) the 'toilet in the nature' can really make your day. I saw holy lakes and holy mountains... generally a lot of things are holy in Tibet. I learned few sentences in Tibetan and how to say 'be careful' in Chinese. I passed through so many police check points that I started to think that China's government might be a little bit paranoid. I got used to drink hot water (apparently that's better that drinking cold water) and glI am now familiar with various Chinese dishes. I ate a lot of rice, for breakfast, for lunch, for dinner...basically whenever I ate something. And finally,I realized that I'm done with super long train rides, no matter how cheap they might be.
