Tibet family


Tibet family
Originally uploaded by Ginas Pics
Grandfather is making mudras, handsigns, to show his joy to be greeted by me, when I said: "Tashi Delek, ... good afternoon..." He looks after his 7 year old grandson Chökry. They sit in front of their nice farm house outside of Lhasa, capital of Tibet, now outonomus region in China.
This family was well off, they had a beautiful farmhouse which he asked me in later on. I was offered butter tea which I drank a little bit of. The taste was very unusual for me but I tried imagining it to be soup instead of tea.
