Happy Losar!

Tuesday was the last day of the three day New Year holidays, known as Losar by the Tibetans. Whereas the first two days are rather quiet, with families visiting temples and accepting visitors at home, the last day is more public, with families out circling the stupa and showing off their new year finery. In the afternoon there was a Losar party at the nearby Hyatt hotel grounds, featuring live music, dance, and lots of food and beer.

Below are some photos taken around the stupa, fol owed by a few shots from the party at the Hyatt. In the first band photo the singer is my art teacher at Shechen.
