Info

A group of Tibetan nomads show off their satellite dish outside the handmade yak-wool tents where they make their home in spring and summer in the Tibetan Plateau. The satellite dish was provided by China's central government; along with a solar battery charger, a truck battery, and a TV so the nomads can watch Chinese broadcasts and learn the Chinese language; an attempt, some say, to assimilate indigenous Tibetans.
