Buddhist Nun Selling Goodies

Buddhist nuns cannot be ordained in Tibet and are not really well supported by the community. Therefore they have to make some extra money selling self made jewelry, carpets, textiles, etc. This little hut was on the monastery's premises.

This young girl lived here in the monastery, she was the only one to speak a little English so I bought a couple of nice little things from her. She was 19 years old and had been living here for 3 years now.
