I couldn’t resist photographing this young nun as she was skateboarding towards us on the streets of Xiahe, China. Xiahe is the home of the Labrang Monastery which we will detail in an upcoming post. It’s well worth a trip for anyone in China but not able to make it all the way into Tibet. It’s in what the Tibetans consider the Amdo region of Tibet which is the birthplace of the Dalai Lama. It’s very colorful; a morning walk around the kora shouldn’t be missed! The monastery is full of monks, nuns and Tibetans that come with buckets of yak butter to keep the candles burning!
