Tsezim and Decky are old friends. They were among the 100,000 Tibetans who fled from Tibet in 1959, along with the Dalai Lama. Decky’s husband was killed during the uprising, but her five children escaped with her. She settled and raised her children in Dharamsala which is currently the home of the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in Exile.
Two Tibetans Two charming old Tibetan women, in Xiahe, that belongs officially to Gansu Province, even if there, it is already Tibet. The contrast between the Chinese city and the Tibetan one is a good and terrible illustration of the situation (China, Gansu, Xiahe, May 2005) by Nicolas Monnot. Beautiful!
