summary Voyage d'une Parisienne à Lhassa ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Western woman to reach Lhasa Annotation copyright Book News Inc Portland O. Didn t want it to end Even if only half of what this lady endured and did to get to Lhasa in disguise of a beggar Tibetan woman were true it would still be a story made of win That was by the way in the time when white people in Asia traveled with tables chairs bread ovens and gramophonesShe and her companion traveled on foot thinly clad living mostly on buttered tea and from time to time stuff so horrible it would burn a hole in my Goodreads page through snow and ice and mud They encountered crafty and stingy peasants bandits wild animals knights and officials but also pilgrims and lamas from faraway lands They slept in caves under a blanket or flat tent covered with snow rarely on dirt floor by the fire I wonder if the story of Mme Alexandra making fire using the techniue of tumo is real They tried to do good by the people they met by the way but mostly could do very little to alleviate poverty and need And the feeling of love and sense of wonder never left her no matter the difficultiesI don t know I think I m sort of morbidly fascinated by Tibet I never tire reading about it but I wouldn t like to travel there I d rather be born in Tibet than go there knowing of other ways of life I wonder how Mme Alexandra came to love it and yearn for it so much when it s obvious it was a horrible place Back then it was a backward feudal theocracy where most people were nothing and had nothing It s evident from her account Now it s a communist wasteland where most people are nothing and have nothingThe descriptions of the nature houses people and especially New Year festivities in Lhasa are amazing

summary Voyage d'une Parisienne à Lhassa ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Old Frenchwoman who trekked in disguise for four months to become the first. Mme David N el was one seriously badass explorerThough she often regards the Tibetan peasantry as childish and superstitious in comparison to the civilisation of her native France Mme David N el s love for the country and formidable achievements as a holy lama shine through Truth often provides us with stranger tales than fiction and this is certainly one instance a lot of the narrow scrapes that cunning determination or sheer good luck got Mme David N el and her son out of would seem contrived in an adventure novelMme David N el takes it all in stride from leopards and bandits to officials and the supernatural with maps in her boots a revolver under her peasant disguise and an unshakeable self possession of the sort that could and probably would stand before her God and declare herself an atheistWorth reading for anyone who loves the sky over their heads and the earth under their boots and can put up with a little white Victorian arrogance
