I took a 'taxi' back to Lhasa. That in itself was funny, as the illegal taxi driver tried to avoid the police in Shigatse who spotted him. He wore a woman hat as a disguise!!! I wished I'd have taken a picture.

There were crowds around the taxi when I turned up so it was humour watching these poeple as they played with my mountain bike before they put it into the boot of the car, that had to be tranported.

Funny watching them attempt to create a lower profile, and be descrete , yet 20 people surrounded one taxi in the middle of a busy street. The driver had to drive off with the car, and my bike in it initally leaving me behind. I chased him, just in case it was the last time I ever saw my stuff again!!

Eventually, an hour later, another driver tunred up! Replacing the disguised one and after the 4 hours drive I was dropped off on the outskirts of Lhasa. I cycled south via the airport and continued east.

Mean while, my friend was at EBC ( everest base camp) and sent me these pics!
