Photographer's Note

Children at a road stop, just a hotel, (clean adobe rooms), and a shop or two. In Tibet, for the poor, anything is of value. On high mountain passes, nomads would simply stare, and hope. An empty can, empty bottle, food, bangle, pen, anything, is something of value to those with nothing. These children were outside a Tibetian hotel, in the middle of nowhere (to a western mind). Some had fossil seashells or crystals to sell. Once before known time, Tibet was under the ocean. Now the landscape is cruel, windswept, freezing, barren. Bags of shorn wool, from nomads, are stacked to be picked up by truck, behind them.
