Info

Tibetan nomads inside a handmade yak-wool tent, which serves as their home in spring and summer in the Tibetan Plateau. The television set in the far right 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.
