Prayer Flags Above
Last night, I was feeling congested and could not sleep. This morning, I still felt congested but my parents happily made eggs again for breakfast! That's two mornings in a row!
After breakfast, I was assigned math that I worked on until lunch time. After lunch, I was still working on my math when I heard a call from Mom saying “get your camera and run down here quick”! In the courtyard, draped from the roof of the clinic to the wall at the entrance, were several strings of prayer flags. Up on the roof, tying the string of flags to a supportive spot up high, was Phonsok. Sitting on the low wall at the entrance, was a Tibetan man named Ojen Tsering. He is managing preparations for this health festival. While we watched, Ojen and Phunsok secured the flags. Under the long banners blowing in the wind, the Tibetans practiced the traditional dance that they will preform the first night of the festival. Their dance astonished all of us with its turns and stunning movement.
