Today was simply magical.
I visited the monk who hitched hiked with me back from my last trip to the monastery, as he has a Tibetan medicine room. The air or something in Leh was giving me some serious allergies. When I sat in there listening to the consults with a French family I found myself being quite amazed. Just by feeling their pulse, he was able to accurately describe what was wrong with them. He gave medication, and instructions and soon it was my turn.
