We lunched with the Yapshi Phunkang Kung (Duke) who is accompanying the Regent on his forthcoming visit to Samye monastery. Tsarong Dzasa was present and we had a quiet friendly party.

In the evening Ringang came in with his wife and small son. They stayed to dinner and saw some of our cinema films.
