Hello Money? Hellomoney? Hellomoney!
The young children of Tibet usually learn these English words quite quickly, especially if there is any chance of tourists passing by, though not all are yet confident enough and hide behind the braver ones..
And why blame them, most families have no or little education, live of the few months that they can work the fields and on less than a US dollar per day. It always give me a strange feeling when I am taking clients to Everest, who pay several thousands of dollars for the expedition of which only a part is spent on the locals by using their yaks and staying in small villages like these for several days. Or is it good that that way people get to see images like these and find other ways to improve the situation?
Shot from a very low angle to enhance the greatness of these small people..
