Tues 13th Sept

Yesterday was gentle day just 94 km on the flat. We started off with a visit to the monastery where the monks were chanting and then climbed a stupa for great views of the town and mountains. The barley was all being harvested by hand and the reapers sheltered under umbrellas for  lunch. 
The whole area was poor and the only other vehicles were land cruisers with Chinese tourists. As we biked into Shigatse the river was crowded with washerwomen and bathers. Having a rest day here.
