Tibet - 1993 on the roof of the world

Our entry into Tibet was difficult in 1993. In Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province, we received an address in a hotel where you could get a visa to enter Tibet. But here we demanded a very large amount of money in cash for a document in Chinese characters whose content and authenticity we could not test. So we declined and decided after another unsuccessful prescription at the visa office the following day, now to ask the Chinese airline CAAC, if we could simply buy plane tickets to Lahasa.
