Photographer's Note

Another picture from the motorbike ride back to Lhasa from Everest basecamp. Our first stop that morning in a small village.
While we often cursed that road, when it was in bad conditions, it is a big discussion, whether the construction of the road by Chinese will improve conditions for families like this one. It could easily be seen as part of what Dalai lama just called a "cultural genocide", built by Chinese for Chinese promoted tourism. Who will benefit from the 4w tourism in Tibet?
At least the curiosity in the boys' eyes are still universal.
Auto enhance of colours and saturation.
