The shopkeeper of a moon cake store on the Niangre Road (S) said, "The sales of moon cakes are much better than in 2008. Several days ago, a teacher from Tibet University bought 50 moon cakes for his students."

He added that some people bought relatively expensive ones to send to their friends in inland areas.

A man surnamed Wang has ordered a Mid-autumn dinner at a hot pot restaurant on the Deji Road (N). He said that it would be a beatific thing to have dinner with his family members on the Mid-autumn Day.

Dawa, who runs a hostel on the Beijing Road (M), went to a restaurant on the Deji Road (N) to order a dinner for the Mid-autumn day.

She said, "My friends in Beijing will come to Lhasa to celebrate the Mid-autumn Festival with me, because they said Lhasa is the nearest place to the moon in China."
