Hello Gert,
Your main picture surely is a postcard, one I'd also like to make. Nice to see the Potala surrounded at three sides by prayer wheels. Even gold plated adding an extra colour to the photo.
Nice to find the row of postmen in the WS. Or are it busdrivers? On the same picture we can see that there are a lot of trees in Lhasa. I mentioned already before that I mistakenly thought that the whole area was arid and without much greenery. There are also a lot of 'modern' buildings on that picture.
I cannot recall to have seen hand prayer wheels before. Perhaps I've forgotten it. A bit like a rosary that could be taken everywhere.
If I understand well, you've travelled to Tibet only to visit Lhasa?
Best regards, Paul

Thank you Paul,
I had the intention to see other Tibetan towns, but once in Lhasa I realized making further travel arrangements wasn't as easy as in some other parts of the country. Long distances, few connections and a risk of running out of time before I had to get on a booked flight out of Hong Kong. There was a lot I wanted to see in southern China too. Actually, no travel arrangements were ever very easy in China. Bureaucracy, language barrier and not always the most service minded ticket salespersons.
Have a nice week,
