They like my underwear

Pilgrims on the Barkhor square

Before I take the bus to the Sera Monestary I drop off my dirty laundry at the Snowlands Laundry Service and am told that I could pick it up the next morning. The Sera monestary is most well known for its slapping sessions a.k.a. discussion sessions; basicly one monk is sitting while the other is standing opposite him and slapping his hands when he has finished his argument. After all the slapping I went to the Barkhor square to take some photo's of all the pilgrims with their different hats.

The next day I had to prepare for leaving Lhasa so I began packing my backpack and noticed something odd in my clean laundry bag from the Snowlands. They had replaced 3 of my sportboxers with someone elses boxers. That's inconvienent as it is but if they replace it with boxers that are twice the size you have that's gonna be a problem. So I went back to the Snowlands and they didn't understand the problem as they said they could not be sure if I were scamming them. Yes I know I should have checked when I got the back but strangely the other 2 sportboxers were mine. The 3 missing had the same print and they were gone, so I think the Snowlands liked my underwear.
