A policeman, Woeser told me, permanently monitors their apartment. Harrer taught the Dalai Lama mathematics, English and sports, and became his adviser and friend. The lamasery authorities and local native chieftains' hostility towards the Western missionaries in Tibet lingered through the last throes of the Manchu dynasty and into the Republican period.

For hours afterward, I lay in bed, waiting for light to nibble at the edges of the curtains. But the altitude was having a deeper effect on many people on the train.

Every day, according to the Tibetan government in exile, more than five thousand visitors came to Lhasa, of whom some two thousand stayed.

Public " struggle sessions " were held by the Red Guards against " reactionaries " or " capitalists ", in which people were beaten, and publicly shamed.

Every morning, slow mail trains delivered early editions of newspapers that had been printed the night before in their metropolitan bases.
