Da da da da The Lama Factory

Hey Hey and a Big G'Day toya

da da da da Da The Lama Factory!

And what a huge Lama Factory it is! Labuleng Si (Labrang Monastery) is bloody huge mate! Built in 1709 blaa blaa blaa, read the LP for the rest. Dunno how much the tickets were as only a few of the buildings required them for entry. We spent bloody hours walking around the back streets in the Monks housing areas. Seriously, for hours I was NOT in China at al but in some Middle Eastern country. All walls and buidlings were built of mud brick and sticks and stones. It was totally awesome.

The amount of prayer wheels is beyond the joke. I mean this is seriously taking the prayer wheen thing a bit far.

How many prayer wheels does a Lama Factory need? I have no idea! I guess 1174 of them to help 4000 monks get through their day..or it did many years ago anyhow. I have no idea how many there are now, easiest way to find out, ask China Mobile.

Funny thing, a cute kid was looking at me, of course with 99% of its nasal stuffs running down it's face and the father smiled to ok a photo. He then began harrassing me for money for the picture. If this happens to you anywhere, after several no's knock their hand away and walk off. He stood there bewildered after I knocked his 'give me give' gesture away.

Around mid arvo I headed back for a noon Nanna Nap for an hour or two and woke ready for a million beers with an English man after a clay pot. Sadly for me there wasn't an Englishman around so I Netted it instead.

Claypots full of Noodles N No Beers to ya...shane
