Tibetan kids in love

The story behind "Tibetan kids in love"

When relaxing in Taschi Dzom, we took some hikes through the fields to see the life of the Tibetans. Of course the children were intrigued by our cameras and the white skin -hellomoney!
Even when they were begging for money, they were really happy and joyful, which made the begging a lot less painful. It seemed that they were begging out of taught habit, which they probably were. And it d not take long before the HelloMoneys dissapeared and they pulled faces to the camera or just went on with their own business, like these 2 kids who seem totally in love with eachother :)
