Two Tibetan Women, Lhasa, Tibet, MG_3653

Time to move a bit on our journey.  We arrived in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet.  Lhasa is a city and administrative capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region of the People’s Rep. of China.  Lhasa literally means “place of the gods”, and one of the highest cities in the world. It contains many culturally significant Tibetan Buddhist sites such as the Potala Palace, Jokhang  Temple and Norbulinga Palaces.

The pictures below portrays Women chatting, a continuous occurrence in many countries I’ve visited, but very noticeable inTibet.

Very often, you find the women in pair, perhaps as a support to one another.
