What first struck us about the people of Tibet were their beautiful round faces and oustanding rosy cheeks from the high mountain air. They are colorful people, dressed in thick dresses that look like blankets and exotically-ornamented with jewelry and ornately-braided hair.
But what struck us most was their devotion. They don’t practice Buddhism, they live it. Many spend hours a day twirling prayer wheels and thumbing round, wooden prayer beads while circumventing a temple.
From monks to school children, from beggars to street vendors, these are the faces of Tibet.
