I’m setting off for my journey to Tibet tomorrow. I am feeling nervous but very excited. I have plenty of blankets and things to keep me warm. I have brought plenty of food to keep me going for some time. I don’t know how long it will take me but hopefully I will get there safe and sound. Throughout all of my adventures around the world, I think this will be my best one yet.
My dear mother and father don’t know that I’m going to Lhasa and I think they will not be happy. I do know that it will be a risk going to this forbidden land, but all people should be able to visit wherever they want.
I am ready and prepared to see this amazing land. I cannot wait to see what it is like in Lhasa. I will speak to you all very soon,
Alexandra David- Neel.
