Adventures of a Neophyte in Tibet

Cheryl Reighter

After six months of on again, off again departure plans and mixed messages from government officials, we were hoping that we had found the "window of opportunity" for arriving in Lhasa; after Monlam festival, but before the 40th anniversary of "the people's peaceful liberation of Tibet." We were hoping that by sneaking in "low profile" between these two events, we might avoid the possibility of appearing to take one side or the other, (no joke!) and might also avoid "being there" (and thus implicated) during possible riots,which inevitably would result in marshal law being declared and foreign nationals being sent home with failed research plans.
