The story behind "Tibetan farming woman close up"

I stopped the car, so we could film some of the people working the fields on the arid Tibetan plateau, when this woman came up to the car window. Cars with tourists must pass here regularly, but maybe normally they do not stop as she was looking at us at about the same way you were just looking at her picture ;-)

Shame I could not speak her tongue and had to move on. Would be interesting to sit with a family like hers and hear their stories. Amazing how these people can live under such hard circumstances, they are so tough compared to the people we generally breed in the protective western lifestyle.
