Info

A Tibetan nomad walks outside one of the handmade yak wool tents that serves as a home to nomads during spring and summer in the Tibetan Plateau. The satellite dish and solar panel were 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.
