Eine friedliche Geste in einem Land mit leider weniger friedlicher Geschichte. Die Zeichen der chinesischen Besatzung sind in Lhasa deutlich zu erkennen. Im Zentrum der Altstadt, dem täglichen Pilgerziel tausender gläubiger Tibeter, stehen an jeder Ecke mit Maschinengewehren bewaffnete chinesische Soldaten.

A peaceful gesture in a country with, unfortunately, less peaceful history. The signs of the Chinese occupation in Lhasa are clearly visible. At the heart of downtown, the daily pilgrimage destination for thousands of devout Tibetans, Chinese soldiers standing at every corner armed with machine guns.Photo: Tibetian HighlandsPhoto: Tibet - Shigatse - Shigatse Dzong
