Everybody was singing the Tibetan national anthem and praying for peace on earth at Tsongkapa’s celebration in His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s temple.

Many Tibetan monks are good cooks because we always have to cook our own food. In Tibet our families would send us to the monasteries with all our own cooking supplies. In Dharamsala I live in this apartment with a friend and I am happy I know how to cook.

Life in India can sometimes be dangerous. This light post is piled high with all kinds of electrical wires. Many monkeys have been electrocuted on these wires. When the monsoons come they are even more dangerous. Last year three houses caught fire because of them. Since we are refugees there is little we can say or do about it.
