Day 67: Lhasa
Halfway through this intercontinental fry-up our new sound recordist, a tall, thin Chinese, arrives from Beijing. Though he's got here impressively quickly, his expression is apologetic and his face a ghostly shade of green. We later learn that he's suffering from altitude sickness and won't be able to work for the rest of the day.
Recount this story to John when we take him food and supplies at the hospital tonight. It cheers him up no end. He's a lot better generally and now has only one aim – to get out of the People's No. 1 Hospital by any means possible.
