Edging toward Everest Base Camp

Stopped at Sakya Monastary and got some great images here. We saw a lot more monks milling about and a little bit more into their lives. One thing I discovered is that even if they are monks and have dedicated their life to the study of Buddhism, they are still young men, and they certainly horse around like such (see video). The footage show them “debating” at least that was what we were told, it sure just looks like they are goofying around, does it not?

We went inside of their dining hall and there where these lockers, with locks and key, where the monks keep their bowls and cups. Strange.
