Arrival in Dharamsala
We arrived here in McLeod Ganj this morning, tired but in high spirits, and feeling like seasoned Indian travelers (which the group did indeed become this weekend). We had downtime this morning after our 8 AM arrival, followed by a dynamic as always discussion and poetry reading with Lhasang Tsering. Evening had the group working on collaborative journey-genre poetry, the finished product of which Pam will post to the blog tomorrow. The group just retired to the Ladies Venture Guest House after a group screening of 'Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion,' which was provocative if not painful for many to watch, yet inspired some serious discussions over momos and fried rice. Tomorrow morning it's to Namgyal Monastery and then an afternoon talk with Ama Adhe. All's well, and other than some general fatigue and minor stomach issues, all health is better than ever.
