Here are some photographs of my trip with the CDIS Senior class to Tibet and Mt. Everest...
This was the view within five minutes of takeoff from Chengdu. Pollution keeps us from these amazing views.
The team (minus Alvin) arrives at the airport.
Many of the "sacred" objects throughout the streets of Lhasa.
Thanks to these incent smokers, the town of Lhasa was not lacking in the fragrance department.
The view from our favorite restaurant of the trip.
The team at Potala Palace (Alvin included).
China makes sure the flag is front and center.
Dedication from a Tibetan Buddhist.
A view of Lhasa.
This boy received a "health" blessing from a monk. The black smudge on the nose is the sign placed on his body.
Hyundai Santa Fe receiving a monk blessing.
Tibetan woman with her prayer beads and prayer spinner
The Tibetan Buddhists in Lhasa are "Yellow Hats"
My first view of Mt. Everest
Luckily the clouds stayed away early int he morning.
Our second view of Mt. Everest
The clouds begin to roll-in and make our trek to Base Camp seem like a bad idea.
God had other ideas and the clouds vanished... What a view!!!
Pictures do not do the magnitude of Mt. Everest justice.
I am almost taller than Mt. Everest from this view.
The team at Mt. Everest minus Alice, Rosemary and Eun Song.
The guys joined me in removing our shirts at Everest. Joy was not allowed to look!
The name of Everest to the locals.
