    Another great one! I like this mans smile. Harry, this praying man in Xigar may not have known that there is NO way you would be in the same place more than one day!

The story behind "Praying man in Xigar, Tibet"

The 3rd in the miniserie of prayers in Xigar, Tibet. This man with his praying wheel must be taking care when in the sun as his glasses are thick enough to burn his eyes I think.

I was here a year before as well and also had taken a picture of him with his turning praying wheel at exactly the same spot in the small town. First that made me think that he had nothing much more to do, and maybe he was there every day. But then I realised, maybe he is just smiling because he thinks the same of me :-)
