Early on the ride today we encountered the roadworks we
expected, but luckily for us the early start meant that there was not many
other vehicles about, however, the conditions were not so good as there was
fresh snow all around which looked quite picturesque, but there was limited
visibility and I was not surprised to look down and see my instruments reading the
temperature at a chilly 0.5 degrees.
But as the day progressed it got brighter and warmer and I
did manage to stop a few times for photos but I was keen to press on to Lhasa
as we had three nights there and felt in need of a rest.
