The seventh day of our trip featured a strong Tibetan flavor. We enjoyed traditional Tibetan dances, and had a Tibetan meal for supper.

On our way back from Lhoka to Tibet's capital Lhasa, we stopped at the Nyangrain Township to watch a folk art performance.

There was a small orchestra of about six or seven people playing mainly traditional instruments. Then the performers came onto the stage and gave a demonstration of dances from different parts of Tibet.

Although most of the performers were amateurs, they danced to a very high standard. We were deeply impressed by the beautiful music, colorful costumes and superb rhythmic skills.

In the afternoon, my German friend Stefan and I were invited to participate in an online interview about Tibetan tourism. The program was co-hosted by CRI Online and China Tibet Broadcasting.

It was the first time I have been involved in an online interview. I felt a little nervous at the very beginning. But it was fine once the interview started. We received questions and comments from Internet users from across the world. That was quite interesting.

We had a traditional Tibetan meal for supper at a restaurant called the Snow God Palace.

The surroundings of the restaurant were in a strong Tibetan style. We were sitting around large square tables. The seats were lower than the ones I am used to. We were served with traditional Tibetan food like tsampa, yak buttered tea, stewed yak tongue and cheese momo. There was so much to eat we wondered weather the table was big enough to hold everything.
We finish our tour in Tibet tomorrow, and will leave Lhasa for Beijing in the afternoon.
