    Great contrast of the simplicity of the beautiful faces with the technology and westernazation (is this a word) in the clothes and digital camera. I especially love the Coca Cola table.

The story behind "Teahouse family in Tibet"

At the ‘tourist’ side of the Tibetan basecamp of Everest, there are many teahouses like this one. You can get cheap (mostly free) tea or get a can of coke or beer. These people live off the tourists that drop by BC as part of their trip from Lhasa, Tibet to Kathmandu, Nepal.

Though it is very basic, just a large tent with some old mattresses, you can see that even here the locals have a digital camera which they look at with amazement…
