We had a wonderful time in Tibet. We have learned a lot about this unique destination because of the wonderful guide Degyi who is so knowledge and always available towards our tours. We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa, and we would never imagine a Tibet travel could be so nice and amazing without the help of Degyi.

Also, thanks a lot to our Tibetan driver Mr.Wongdun for his safe driving and a good sense of service along the way.

We shall return Tibet in the near future!

The auctioneer, Alain Briscadieu, said that one piece measuring 2.5m x 0.68m had a 250,000 euro ($346,398) opening bid and sold for 1.17 million ($1.62 million) euros.

The winning bid for the other 3.28m x 0.68m fragment hit 720,000 euros ($997,572), which was made by an Asian client via telephone - the bid started at 200,000 euros ($277,107). The two pieces of scroll on offer is said to be part of the sixth in a celebrated series of 12 painted by the artist Wang Hui (1632-1717) to record an inspection tour of southern China by Emperor Kangxi.

Six of the 12 series are stored in Beijing's Palace Museum, while two are in Paris and one is in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Another piece is in Canada, while another two pieces are reportedly lost. The sixth series put on auction this time is alleged to belong to a private French collector, which was split in the 1930s and passed to different inheritors.
